3. Letter Request From Bob Muller

Our Democratic candidate for State Supreme Court, 4th Judicial District, is asking area Democrats to write letters to the papers for him.

He just sent this message out:

"I want to thank all of you for the strong support you have shown throughout this eleven county marathon. Now that I am nearing the 10 yard line the next bit of help I could certainly use from the many of you whom I have met - is to consider a letter to the editor in the papers you are familiar with. Encouraging others who are aware of my candidacy would also be a great boost. I hope you will give serious consideration to this simple request. As always I have relied upon each of you to advance this campaign and I am comfortable knowing I have been in such good hands. "

"Kindest regards & many thanks for all you have undertaken in my behalf."


You can send a letter to the Post Star online at:
Reach other papers at the AAUB Two Minute Activist website. It's a big district, so check that out. Just enter your Zip Code:

A couple of talking points:
1. It's been years since there's a Democrat on the bench- we need at least one to keep the others honest.
2. Although you can vote for three out of four candidates, Bob is the only Democrat. So you should only vote once, for Bob, the sole Democrat. Voting more than once simply dilutes your vote-- they cancel each other out. That helps Bob's competitors.
3. Get more info at Bob's website.

4. Saturday Night Progressive Film Festival

IN THE YEAR OF THE PIG 1968 Emile de Antonio 103 min. RT Rating = N/A
Celebrated and controversial documentary filmmaker Emile de Antonio made IN THE YEAR OF THE PIG, criticizing American involvement in the Vietnam War, during the height of its intensification in 1968. Like his other constructed documentaries, de Antonio takes newsreel and archival footage, along with existing interviews, and uses them to explore the history of Vietnam between the Second World War and the civil war that America would become involved with. Using the very words of those who escalated the conflict against them, de Antonio's film condemns the American involvement in the war by providing disturbing footage of its terrible consequences.

Thanks, everyone!
