Last night was Bingo night. Student volunteers from Phi U at the University of Minnesota stopped by to run the event. Most of the prizes were simple things like nail clippers or hand sanitizer. Some people won a lot and a lot of people won nothing. The event was a break from the routine and they served some very nice snacks- cheese and crackers and chips and salsa.
After the event, they were kind enough to pose for pictures. I spoke to some of the students about saving Dollhouse. Thanks for listening. Here are the links to save the show:
I went to Hamline as an undergraduate so collecting signatures to save the Dollhouse there was very comfortable. Many things have changed. The eagles have been moved from the admissions house to Manor. Not sure why, but okay.
Somethings remain the same. This week the campus is focusing on the issue of being homeless. I used to be involved in the Shantytown projects at Hamline. I found those valuable experiences. Strange also in light of recent events. I just found out that Shantytown is probably not going on this year at Hamline!
I attended a forum on hunger and justice issues.
One interesting thing which was very was Sprout- a student group dedicated to gardening, food justice, urban agriculture, community inclusivity, and environmental justice. They are donating food they produce in community gardens to the Hamline Midway Elders.
In any event, there were quite a few Dollhouse fans on campus. I appreciated all the support and signatures.
Again, here are the critical links.
Here is the link to the TNT petition:
I want to thank all of the students who have been signing the letters. It really helps out. I would prefer not to have to wage a public campaign like this. In any case, it is very much appreciated. I feel the response to the TNT letters is overwhelming. THANK YOU!
Last night it was St. Thomas.
After today’s sessions, I stopped by the Hope Chest and dropped off a book on cancer survival. I headed down to Macalaster for some signature gathering. The good news is that there was a chili festival going on, so I met some nice people and enjoyed some good food.
Respecting Fox’s request not to contact them, I’m going to gather signatures to get the show moved to TNT if Fox cancels it. I’m hoping to get the contact information for Sam Linsky as I feel that would be the most helpful person in this situation.
By biking, instead of riding the bus, I had just enough money to purchase a ream of paper, so now I can print more materials.
