Blogging Against Disablism 2010 + May Day

Just wanted to give you a heads up that a post about the priesthood and mental illness is coming on Saturday.  This is part of the Blogging Against Disablism Day.  Join in if you feel so moved!

May 1 is also May Day.  Please, please, please (God is begging you) find your local protest – many are being organized in response to the horrible, disgusting Arizona immigration law SB1070.

In case you need something to put on your sign:
