Making a Difference

Women of Wonder

Kate Clinton, comedian extraordinaire

Kate Clinton is a faith-based, tax-paying, America-loving political humorist and family entertainer. She has worked through economic booms and busts, Disneyfication and Walmartization, gay movements and gay markets, lesbian chic and queer eyes, and ten presidential inaugurals. She still believes that humor gets us through peacetime, wartime and scoundrel time. Read on...

On the days when you feel that you simply cannot abide one more day
of the pious, perverted patriarchy, take heart and remember the energy these points of light bring to our world.

Helen Thomas, White House Press Core and Bush nemesis
(she actually asks questions and expects answers).

At 72 she has more chutzpa in her little finger than the entire White House press core.

Congresswoman Cynthia Mckinney has proven correct in all of her accusations about the Bush administration post 9/11.

The vicious Rove lie machine has been working overtime to try to find anything to discredit

Like all uppity women Cynthia pushes the envelope for all of us.

Don't let the scapegoating, scallywags of scandal (Republicans and some Democrats in the pocket of corporate America) get you down Cynthia.

You give me hope.

Kris Abney is the web editor of, where she has dedicated the past seven years of her life bringing community to women coming out later in life.

My favorite quote of hers:

"I don't want a bigger house. I want a bigger heart."

Her friend is "Grover" an elf with fur.

Iraq Uncensored

The Bush administration has censored photographs of the wounded, body bags, and flag-draped coffins. Imagine its fears over large numbers of Americans viewing Jon Alpert and Matthew O'Neill's new documentary, Baghdad ER.

Airing Sunday, May 21, at 8:00 PM on HBO, Baghdad ER examines the 86th Combat Support Hospital which the filmmakers chronicled for two months. One nurse, Specialist Saidet Lanier, describes life at the field hospital this way: "This is hard-core, raw, uncut trauma. Day after day, every day."

Initially, military officials were enthusiastic about the heroic portrayal of this medical staff which has – along with other trauma teams – somehow managed the highest survival rate for wounded soldiers during any war at a stunning 90 percent.

Cris has been on the road throughout the past year and everywhere she goes our souls are lifted by her presence.

Thanks for refreshing the light and reminding us how to draw on our own. We love you Cris.

Thanks for making a difference. Light comes in many forms - you are my photon women of week. You make my heart sing.
