This Site Map WAS Operative.
Link on what you wanted to find and on my computer it will take you to that file.
We want the technique to provide an enticing way to select different issues and
different levels on extent of information. I figure about three levels.

Topic of the Week:

Summer Planning for Community Building Around Presidential Elections

Our work this summer will be devoted to planning information files for use by all who are interested in the social and economic issues that will be affected by the upcoming presidential elections. Instead of posting completed issues, I'm going to post all week long as we work on the issue, finishing it just as we start the next week's issue. We hope that in this way, those who wish to share in our work will feel free to send in comments and sources as we work.

This week we started with a set of files on veteran issues and with a set on the importance of context to interpretation. This is a teaching site, dealing with social and criminal justice. Our personal biases tend towards a progressive position. But our goal is to present the many perspectives out there on each issue, so that everyone in our communities can find information that fits their personal context. love and peace, jeanne, Susan, Pat

love and peace, jeanne

    Make it a gay-old time "C'mon, senior citizens, vote for same-sex marriage -- it's the future." Joel Stein. Los Angeles Times. Friday, May 30, 2008.Opinion Section. At p. A19.

    C'mon, young people. We know you're moving a little faster than we are, and you're anxious to get on with change. Sound bites, though sexy, are seriously misleading. If you want control of the change you're so anxious to subject us all to, you'll need the information that journalists and serious newspapers provide. We give you a list of both conservative and liberal newspapers at the end of this page. Use it. Think a little more deeply. Get the facts, as perceived by opposing positions. Talk about the issues. We'll all live longer and better for it. jeanne
