90. be the change you want to see...
As a case in point, if you want to question decisions that were made in planning "that stupid MN Conference," I bet you can think of more constructive ways to do it than to announce here that you're withdrawing financial support from two of the sponsors. (You say that subject doesn't belong in the thread, which seems reasonable, yet here it is.)

Have you, for instance, contacted the organizers to express your regret that activists from your state weren't invited to participate? Might that lead to useful conversations, maybe even collective action, instead of widening ripples of recrimination?

I'm sure you realize that if you try to work in coalition long enough, sooner or later everyone will anger or disappoint you. We can spend our time vying to be angrier or more disappointed, but, why?

If you want to talk about audits in South Dakota, let's talk. It isn't too late, and it obviously isn't too early.

Wilms knows well that I disagree with him about Bo Lipari, but this "quin es ms ad hominem" thang leads nowhere, and who has time for nowhere?
