Lemonade Stand to Support the Nigerian Kidnapped Female Students is this Saturday!


Hi New Orleans friends, this Saturday you can enjoy a lemonade and make a difference for the Nigerian girls kidnapped for wanting a "western education." Please come out and make a stand. It's easy for us not to care about what doesn't happen in our backyard. I believe in human rights and I hope you do too. It's important!

Address:919 Adams St
Date: Sat. May 17th 2014
Time:11:00am-3:00pm

Here is the letter from the sponsor:

Hello Everyone,

Mosobalaje Bidima (Mrs Thiel's Class) and I will have her first Lemonade stand and other things for sale in honor of the 270 girls forcefully abducted and taken into captivity by Muslim militants while @ school in the North Eastern part of my country, Nigeria a month ago. Their crime? Receiving 'western education.'

We want to support 2 of the women's groups on ground in Nigeria that are helping the parents who are affected by this travesty and are asking the world for help.

Indeed, in recent time, there appears to be an increasing war against innocent school children world wide. Injustice somewhere is injustice everywhere.

Mosoba's tent will be in the parking lot of First Free Mission Baptist Church.

Address:919 Adams St
Date: Sat. May 17th 2014
Time:11:00am-3:00pm

If you are interested in coming out to hang out with us for a minute or two or more, you can create and bring along your own sign:#Bring Back Our Girls!

Also, help us spread the Word to as many people as you know who care about the plight of children ANYWHERE in the world.

We will take pictures of our SOLIDARITY.

Thank you for your time.

This is my favorite hangover story. A raise of the glass to the inimitable Dorothy Parker.


You Were Perfectly Fine

Dorothy Parker

The pale young man eased himself carefully into the low chair, and rolled his head to the side, so that the cool chintz comforted his cheek and temple.“Oh, dear,” he said.”Oh, dear, oh, dear, oh, dear. Oh.”The clear-eyed girl, sitting light and erect on the couch, smiled brightly at him.“Not feeling so well today?” she said.“Oh, I’m great,” he said.”Corking, I am. Know what time I got up? Four o’clock this afternoon, sharp. I kept trying to make it, and every time I took my head off the pillow, it would roll under the bed. This isn’t my head I’ve got on now. I think this is something that used to belong to Walt Whitman. Oh, dear, oh, dear, oh, dear.”“Do you think maybe a drink would make you feel better?” she said.“The hair of the mastiff that bit me?” he said.”Oh, no, thank you. Please never speak of anything like…

PATRIOTISM

On the twenty-eighth of February, 1936 (on the third day, that is, of the February 26 Incident), Lieutenant Shinji Takeyama of the Konoe Transport Battalion—profoundly disturbed by the knowledge that his closest colleagues had been with the mutineers from the beginning, and indignant at the imminent prospect of Imperial troops attacking Imperial troops- took his officer’s sword and ceremonially disemboweled himself in the eight-mat room of his private residence in the sixth block of Aoba-cho, in Yotsuya Ward. His wife, Reiko, followed him, stabbing herself to death. The lieutenant’s farewell note consisted of one sentence: “Long live the Imperial Forces.” His wife’s, after apologies for her unfilial conduct in thus preceding her parents to the grave, concluded: “The day which, for a soldier’s wife, had to come, has come. . . .” The last moments of this heroic and dedicated couple were such as to make the gods themselves weep. The lieutenant’s age, it should be …
