Great Women of Texas: Molly Ivans

No sheros list would be complete without a nod to Molly. I miss her. She made such great fun and sense out of politics. I used to read her column in our local paper in the morning out loud to Emily as we sat around the kitchen table drinking coffee. She could put things into perspective so quickly and have me holding my sides from laughter. Here’s a taste…It’s a speech she gave just before the 2004 election to students in pre-katrina New Orleans at Tulane. It’s pretty long so grab a cup of coffee, sit down and enjoy…

Susan Sarandon’s Views on a McCain Presidency

…Sarandon is about to start work on the romantic period drama The Colossus, but with the presidential election campaign being heatedly contested, she also has bigger things to consider.

“If McCain gets in, it’s going to be very, very dangerous,” she says.

“It’s a critical time, but I have faith in the American people. If they prove me wrong, I’ll be checking out a move to Italy. Maybe Canada, I don’t know. We’re at an abyss.”

Tennessee Equality Project Needs You!

Legislative Update 03/09/2008
Dear valerie,

When was the last time you were dissed after sharing a positive experience when volunteering for a project or event? Examples of volunteerism may be handing out flyers for an upcoming TEP event, coming to Advancing Equality Day or doing make-up for a charitable fashion show.

How in the world can someone take your very positive experience and put a bad spin on it? Some say you are bragging for your good deeds or may be just taking credit yourself for a successful project. Do not be discouraged by the naysayers! Be challenged.

TEP would not exist without you, our members. We continue to thrive through your good works both in the LGBT community as well as the communities where you reside. I encourage you to continue to volunteer your time and let other people know you are a TEP member and invite them to join you—especially those who say you are doing something for “credit” or recognition. After joining in and actually participating in a project, event or a TEP Email Blast initiative, maybe they will feel compelled to share their positive experience as well, and ask others to be a part of something rewarding.

The bottom line TEP Member is this—be a champion for the Cause! It is ok to take credit, share your good works on behalf of TEP and other personal projects. The key reason for TEP’s growing membership is the support of people like you, opening these emails each week and forwarding them to friends and family. I give you credit for that!

Now I ask this: go to TEP’s website and sign up, or renew your membership today, then send this email on and ask a couple of your friends to do the same. And finally, please go out and take credit for being a key reason why TEP is the largest membership LGBT organization in Tennessee.

All my best and breathe easy, as there is no negative legislation up for debate at the Capitol this week.

Take care,

Jenny Ford
TEP Lobbyist
