10,000 words, 10 hours

I think that's how much I've written so far. Slow and steady. I forgot to mention that last night, Susan Saladoff, the director of "Hot Coffee," the film that my sister edited, was on the Colbert Report last night. You can watch the interview online, where Susan was able to give a lot of good info on what tort reform really is (I love how she says it should be called tort deform). I've been reading about Asian American activism, and have been thinking about how to do activist work beyond the obvious methods. Then I think of my sister, who is now cutting a documentary about how corporations don't pay taxes. How she doesn't get totally depressed is beyond me.

  1. tort deform. sounds like a strange offering at the corner coffee cafe.

  2. language is that tool that those in power love to use as a weapon! which is why 'tort reform' sounds so harmless, when it really is all about taking rights away from people (meaning real live humans, not corporations).

    which is why i prefer the way you use language.
