I posted a diary here about some nasty pending legislation in Indiana that needs some prompt citizen action, which diary I am hereby diary whoring
(semantic/philosophical connudrum:does it count as diary whoring if you only promote your diary in your own diary? And only post one diary a day or fewer? And never even clog up the idle jibber-jabber open threads with links
to the one diary entry/call to action that you're trying to promote?)
I'm pimping this story because I want your help getting the word out to people, especially Hoosiers, who still have time to do something about it.
Below the fold: why Indiana matters, and why I'm an obstacle to the progress of human knowledge.
The legislation in Indiana
is important for all the reasons given in the linked article. But existentially the great State of Indiana matters because it is the natal state of my own Dear Wife Betty, and home to Purdue University
, my grad school alma matrix (agricultural economics), whose Boilermakers, football, kinda did the old choke-a-runious move last season, and whose Boilermakers, basketball, are best not discussed in mixed company, but which shall ever remain dear in our hearts as the place where the stars drew Dear Wife and I together. (Technically she was just "Betty" at the time, however.) Indiana is flat and full of Republicans but by no means an unpleasant or uninteresting place, especially if you have an interest in agriculture (and who does not?). A typical Indiana corn/soybean farm, for example, is a fascinating place that has something of the sacred about it, if you don't mind my getting a little mushy for a momemnt.
So please help me help me help the good people of the Hoosier state by reading the diary entry that every's talking about and following the simple, trivially simple, instructions contained therein.
As to my being an obstacle to the progress of human knowledge, please find the details here.
Now be a good sport, pretty please, and help me spread the word about that legislation?
