Yay! A weekly series meant for Sunday, done on Sunday!
Free Harry Nicolaides
I rarely beg on the blog of whall.
A good blog friend of mine, Adam Daniel Mezei (also on utterli and twitter) brought this to my attention and I’m bringing it to yours.
Would you please sign this petition to ask for Harry Nicolaides to be freed from Thailand prison?
There’s an interesting (and outrageous) backstory to the whole deal, which I encourage you to listen to or read, but if you don’t have time to learn, please have time to sign.
Side note: If you’re on utterli, I also encourage you to follow Mr Adam (also known as ADM) mentioned above. As the Eastern Europe’s Utterli Ambassador from Prague in Czech Republic (a Canadian transplant) who speaks a million and one languages, he imparts knowledge by proxy… all you have to do is listen to him regularly and you will get wiser about the world.
If you don’t read Shiny’s Takeout (sound it out, you’ll get it), or haven’t visited it in a while, you should go check out his Plagiarism Week 2009.
I’ll go ahead and say this now and get it out. He completely stole this idea from me.
But at least he called it Plagiarism Week. I guess that’s his “out” so to speak. His mimicry has been outstanding. I tell you, this Shiny guy is really funny. I still laugh out loud when I think about the time I read his political post. It was the most brilliant thing I read that week.
He’s plagiarized some fantastic bloggers out there.
Although I said I’d steer clear from the politics on my blog, I’ll at least do one more bout of begging. Call or email or fax your Senator to have him or her vote NO on the Stimulus plan!
You can go to congress.org, put in your zip code on the top right and find your elected officials. Most Congressmen and women allow you to contact them directly online, so do it.
At least learn what all’s in this stimulus plan. THEN tell your Senator what you think. You don’t have to agree with me – if you think they should pass it, contact them and tell them. But I think if you learn about the package, you’ll see more and more why passing it is a horrendous idea.

Mine is the “unsettling” one.
