The Harvard Living Wage Campaign
has been sitting in blocking the administration building for 8 days, 8 hours, and 58 minutes. They've been nytimesed
and you'd think the college would have
to listen to Ben Affleck (and Ted Kennedey and 200 faculty and...).

What went wrong for Ralph?
Now that the whining and accusations has died down a little, it's time to finally ask the hard question: So why did Ralph Nader do so badly?
. Did his campaign drift too far left? Was Winnona LaDuke the right running mate? Did the Green party help or hurt him? What did Nader himself do to screw his own campaign.

Nader's new television ad
parodies those hilarious monster.com ads with the little kids hoping they'll grow up to have crappy jobs. In the Nader ad, the kids hope they'll grow up to have the same crappy politicians, sold out to corporations, with no real change.

Unsafe in any state.
Salon trashes the Nader campaign big time, mainly claiming that his run for the Presidency is "reckless" and "dangerous". In an alleged democracy, doesn't any candidate who passes muster with the entry requirements have the right to run for the office?

Nader does good ad.
Pair of talking heads on Nader's upcoming TV ad. Interesting analysis, and links to either a transcript or a Windows Media file of the ad.

I approached this review
expecting it to be of the "major media providers are the problem, not the solution" sort, but discovered something somewhat different: "It’s not that the medium of the modern political campaign–television advertising–failed to do justice to men of substance, but that men of substance failed to adapt to television advertising..."

The fans have spoken and Lucas has listened.
Seems that Episode I is coming out on DVD after all. And Lucas says the web campaign on various sites encourage him to change his mind. How does this affect popular politics on a grander scale? And when will politicians jump on board the bandwagon?
