So Saturday February 16 at Casey's downtown at 2PM again.  This diary by navajo illustrates our last meeting.

IMHO our meetings should be social events AND learning experiences AND catalysts for action.

Dana Siegelman
So this time we have a guest speaker; Dana Siegelman.  

I met her last night at a Great Minds event. She was not the featured speaker but she was a special guest and she spoke a bit about her farther's case.

I had read OPOL's diaries about Alabama Governor Don Siegelman but what I read after meeting her has horrified me.  He is essentially serving a 7 year sentence on trumped up charges and the guy that run the show behind the scenes was Karl Rove.

Dana speaking alone should motivate LA Kossacks to come.  She is very eloquent as you can see in her TV interviews, posted below the orange croissant, and her father's case is pivotal in American justice and politics.  She happens to live in Los Angeles now.  I am hopping that some of you will perhaps be motivated to help her get her father out of jail.

But to make things more inetersting, I'm planning to establish a live teleconference with OPOL who knows Dana's father.  So this will be the 1st live teleprescence meeting attempt with Kossacks in 2 states.  (Skype video should do.)

So please get the word out and let me know (by comment or message) if you are coming.

In any case, please sign Dana's petition to free her father.

Watch the 60 Minutes on the case.  Shocking!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
