  1. Dude.—There is absurdly little info on the site. Some of us are certainly not gonna donate no money, sans some more specifics.

    So please make all “good speed” (whoops) toward making the UMAPA site mo detailed. Thankyouverymuch.
    Featured W. Bush birthday haiku I just sent to the DCCC haiku contest:

    Bush am-Bushed us all:
    Florida; ...Enron; ...Baghdad.
    —Won’t get fooled again!

    Went Yale and Harvard,
    But SOOO, SO little you learned.

  2. I agree. More details about the current or proposed activities of UMUPA would be cool. I guess you could argue that if I don’t know it’s my fault because I didn’t go to that meeting, etc.—but even so, clarification is needed for folks who don’t happen to live in towns where a ‘mass meeting’ took place.

    I’d put this on organization’s site, but there’s no invitation for feedback.
