Terrible News Friday, Regroup Saturday

From The Associated Press today:  "In a one-two punch elating religious conservatives, President Donald Trump’s administration is allowing more employers to opt out of no-cost birth control for workers and issuing sweeping religious-freedom directions that could override many anti-discrimination protections for LGBT people and others."

Well. My wife and I were already signed up to attend a fundraiser tomorrow evening for a women's rights organization here in Seattle. Legal Voice has a distinguished track record of fighting for reproductive and LGBT rights. After today's announcements out of the other Washington, I expect the speeches tomorrow to be impassioned, the crowd outraged and the booze barely adequate.
