political T-shirts and buttons provides an interesting conversational
gambit and can generate instant friends or adversaries. There are
many buttons to choose from in this election season, and they were
on display at Democratic Headquarters.
On a different level of action, Jan Brown, a nurse and U.S. Air
Force veteran, announced during the Veterans' event at the Capitol
that a local T.V. station, KOVR (channel 13), will be showing a
"documentary" that attempts to smear John Kerry. Sinclair
Broadcasting, a rightwing company, has ordered its stations to air
the film in the week before the election. Jan Brown requested that
Kerry supporters call or e-mail KOVR, demanding that they can this
film. We should also call KOVR advertisers, alerting them that we
will no longer buy their products if they do not remove their ads
from this anti-Kerry campaign smear.
