PPP Bill II
Up until this point, the speculative intent of the legislation has been to impede participation in Gay Straight Alliances (GSAs). During a hearing on the Bill by the Senate Education and Youth Committee, no mention was made of the Bill’s impact on LGBT youth.
But in yesterday’s email, [Georgia Christian Coalition’s Sadie] Fields finally made their intent clear. NOTE. THE ORIGINAL EMAIL FROM SADIE FIELDS HAS NOT BEEN EDITED AND CONTAINS A TYPO. “These bills have been heavily lobbied against by the homosexual community as they continue to form “Gay-Straight Alliance” clubs in pubic (sic) schools around the state without any notification being sent to parents about these clubs. In 2001 there were two such clubs in schools in Georgia—today there are 33 such clubs in schools in Georgia.”
I’ll be glad to see her.
And she’s still a southerner; living in Atlanta since the Turner years.
Nightline on blogging
Last night Nightline focused on blogging. They attended a Berkman Bloggers meeting, where Steve Garfield taped the tapers. BTW, the interviewed bloggers appear to agree that bloggers are not journalists.
