Writing voter guide for MS

Busy with family, Occupy Mississippi, and writing voter guide. Although Mississippi did not produce idiotic immigration legislation it is proposing something much worse, prop 26.

I am seeking views on the proposition and other initiatives on the ballot.

Working against clock. Hope to be press ready by Wednesday.

I am a lover of Fantasy and Science Fiction since childhood. What I have noted over the years is a common theme, humans(White people) have changed the environment to the point of either some horrifying human mutation or some climate apocalypse.  I often wonder why in these writings we don't see an evolution that leads to world peace.  Start Trek is one of the few that shows the possibility for humans after we  learn to work for peace not war.  However,  even Star Trek fails to accur…
