The Tennessee Waltz - singer Patti Page 1950

"The Tennessee Waltz" was #1 for thirteen weeks in 1950
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patti_Page

written by Redd Stewart and Pee Wee King in 1947, popularized by Patti Page and by Les Paul and Mary Ford in 1950
-------------------------
I was waltzing with my darlin' to the Tennesse waltz
when an old friend I happened to see.
I introduced him to my loved one,
and while they were waltzing
my friend stole my sweet-heart from me.

I remember the night and the Tennessee waltz.
Now I know just how much I have lost.
Yes I lost my little darlin' the night
they were playing the beautiful Tennessee waltz.

"Tell Me How to Fix This"

AlexThe Bully Project, a new documentary from filmmaker Lee Hirsch is a heartbreaking look at on-going violence and harassment that plagues school communities. Over the course of the film we meet

  • Alex (pictured), whose daily abuse from peers stymies school officials who can't seem to offer much beyond shake-and-make-up solutions.
  • Kelby, shunned by her community for coming out as gay, adults and students alike make school unsafe for her.
  • Ja'meya, a 14 year-old behind bars for pulling a gun on her tormentors.

But the motivation for The Bully Project is most acutely illustrated by the kids we don't meet – seventeen year-old Tyler Long, eleven year-old Ty Smalley, and hundreds like them – who took their own lives in response to relentless bullying. Their deaths are the tragic effects of a dysfunction readily acknowledged to be everywhere, but nowhere in particular.

It's like alcoholism, said Tyler Long's mother in a Q and A following The Bully Project screening in Washington, D.C. "Until

Don't Count Them Out

I'm sensing some civil disobedience coming on.

When poor people organize themselves, raise money, make plans, and decide what's best for the kids at their neighborhood school, they get stepped on. When the same thing happens in Lakeview, combined with the exit of the kids-in-poverty, it's some kind of miraculous expression of how fabulous community involvement is.

Free Speech Loses Again—Irvine 11 Case Will Not Be Tossed


A judge last week denied a motion to dismiss charges against the Irvine 11, a group of students from the University of California Irvine and Riverside campuses who disrupted a speech by Israeli ambassador Michael Oren at UC Irvine in February, the Daily Pilot reported today. The defense argued the laws cited by the Orange County district attorney's office were not applicable because the law only prohibits disruptions of meetings that are not political or religious in nature. Oren’s speech on U.S.-Israeli relations was clearly political. Judge Peter Wilson, however, disagreed.

The students, members of the Muslim Student Unions at UCI and UC Riverside, had been
