Uncle Roger's Notebooks of Daily Life
My life is, to me, ripe with frequent challenges, occasional successes, spontaneous laughter, adequate tears, and enough *life* to last me a lifetime. To you, however, it surely seems most pedestrian. And therefore, I recycle the name I used previously and call this my Notebooks of Daily Life. Daily, because it's everyday in nature, ordinary. These conglomeration of events that are my life are of interest to me because I live it, perhaps mildly so to those who are touched by it, and could only be of perverse, morbid curiosity to anyone else. Yet, I offer them here nonetheless. Make of them what you will, and perhaps you can learn from my mistakes.

Lest we let the companies that stepped up to take a stand in the KRXQ mess think they might have made a mistake, I've put together some business cards to give to employees when visiting these establishments. The cards say:
I am here today because your company took action to say that child abuse is not a joke.
After DJ's at radio station KRXQ in Sacramento verbally attacked transgendered children and promoted both verbal and physical abuse of TG kids, your company made the decision to stop advertising on KRXQ.
Making the right choice should not affect your business. You are, in fact, getting additional business and increased loyalty because of your company's stand. Please share this card with management to let them know that doing the right thing paid off.
They're formatted for Avery Business Cards, but could just as easily be printed on plain paper or cardstock and cut manually. You can download the cards in PDF format and, if you like, you can flip the paper over and run it through again to print a list of the companies on the back.
Perhaps there is some hope for our species after all. After hearing about doctors being killed in the name of saving lives, rights being taken away because of a book most of its followers have never read, and education being stripped to the bone so that we can keep buying our big screen TV's, it's nice to see people -- a lot, apparently -- and companies doing the right thing.
What does it say about our society when, in times of economic hardship, the first thing we do is cut funding for education, children's services, and healthcare for kids?
