    I wish this was more than a drop in the bucket. Pamela Olson is a real humanist and American. I hope all who live fairly nearby go.

    I second Citizen’s comments about Pamela. She is inspiring.

    Pamela’s presentation last night was excellent and well-attended. She was asked whether she ever felt any danger during her years in Palestine, where she identified herself as an American.
    “Five times,” she said. “Four times from the Israeli occupying forces. But only once from Palestinians — from a taxi driver, who was driving like a maniac until I asked him to slow down.”
