STAYIN' ALIVE IN RED AMERICA

OK. Let's give it a go. Here is the idea:

I want everyone to send me a write-up of a Blue H(e)aven in Red America: A neighborhood, a cafe, a bookstore, a restaurant, any place in a deep red part of America where progressives can gather and find political soulmates. Send me as detailed a write-up as possible, complete with addresses, telephone numbers, websites, pictures, GPS coordinates and all that good stuff. Send it by email to me at rwolff@afroam.umass.edu

Tell all of your friends and relatives in Red America to contribute. When in doubt -- i.e., havens in Purple America -- send it in. We can have a chapter on Transitional waterholes. If we assemble enough material for a book, we will try to find a publisher. if we succeed, then all of the royalties will go to Planned Parenthood.

Let us see what happens.

Love this idea. Do not actually have such a place. The internet had provided me with acess to virtual supportive discussions. Ky latest fin is on the On Being blog...Krista Tippett on NPR presents The conscience behind the idea of America...I believe it is Jacob Freedman, though I have forgotten his exact surname, who presents these lovely thoughtful ideas. My Independence Day inspiration to share.
