MassEquality

Josh Marshall pointed to MassEquality, an organization that hopes to block efforts to add anti-gay provisions the state constitution. Like Marshall, I'm of two minds -- and I really do think we have more important things to talk about. But losing this fight isn't the going to help anything, so I followed the link and gave them a small donation.

I've tried to contact my state senator and my representative, but they're too busy (it seems) to write back. I think we're all on the same side of this issue, I've asked how I might help, but the staff is so overwhelmed, it seems, that they can't ask for help or money or support.

Winer saw this one coming early on. I thought he was being too optimistic and marketing to hard, but he was right: weblogs are going to be powerful tools for organizing, and they're going to transform politics.
