this is just a short post linking to stuff i've been writing over at the hand mirror lately. there's a post on the organisers of the rugby world cup calling for volunteers when they should be paying people fair wages for that work; another about the notion of collective responsibility, or more like collective guilt; and one today about the difficulties of being an activist within a minority community.
while i'm here, i did mean to note that i'm really happy that there is going to be another rally in america, in response to the glenn beck/sarah palin thing a few weeks back. and who else would be more appropriate to organise the rally to restore sanity than john stewart, with support from stephen colbert. wish i could be there.
