We herein reproduce that letter and our understated response to it.

I received my bright pink invitation in the mail again. It comes every year. It's the Oregon Garden, inviting me to renew my membership to the garden. (I received a membership some time back as a gift, but let it lapse after coming face to face with the horror of timber industry propaganda.) This is the letter I wrote back to them on the back of the form, which I will send in the envelope provided. Please consider calling or writing to them yourself, if you would like to.

The two states of Washington and Oregon need to create or at the least support the creation of "a well regulated Militia" called the Joint Action Citizenry Corp (J.A.C.C.) or a single member would be a J.A.C. (Joint Action Citizen) or a "Jack". All citizenry would be invited for training in preparation for times of catastrophic crises. In fact ideally all citizens should have at least basic training in first aid and protocol during times of crises.

SOU's Student Government Kicks Military Recruiters Out of the Student Union
Southern Oregon University's Student Government (ASSOU) passed a resolution last night banning military recruiters from the Student Union. The US Military's discrimination against homosexuality, the so-called "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy, is in direct conflict with SOU's anti-dicrimination policy. The resolution was carried 8 votes to 2.

Steve Ryan, student senator and sponsor of the resolution said of its passage, "SOU's Student Government is taking a proactive role in protecting students from discrimination. Clearly the military's 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' policy conflicts with the Universities anti-discrimination policy. We saw the contradiction and wanted to find a solution."
