Subject: With Caravans and Cabarets Retirees Push for Single Payer

Today, September 13, 2010, Retirees for Single Payer
Health Care will meet at 11:30 AM at UAW Local 22 (4300
Michigan Ave.) in Detroit to caravan to the office of
Congressman John Dingell in Dearborn where they will
demonstrate and seek to win Dingell's support and
co-sponsorship for HR 676, national single payer health
care.

With so many plant closings and loss of health plans in
the once thriving motor city, this gutsy group, mostly
UAW retirees, has a plan to organize the hard-hit
workers of Detroit.  They lobby, demonstrate, agitate,
and educate to win over Michigan's representatives and
senators to support Congressman Conyers' bill, HR 676,
which would bring all necessary care to everyone
establishing health care as a human right.

On Monday, September 20, theyll meet at 1:00 pm at UAW
Local 22 to hear from guest speaker Dr. David Apsey,
DDS, a member of Physicians for a National Health
Program.  www.pnhp.org.

On Friday, September 24, they will come together for a
Fun Night Cabaret, 6 pm to midnight, also at UAW Local
22, $5 in advance, $7 at the door.

On Monday, September 27, the group will hold a regular
meeting with a light lunch at 1:00 pm at UAW Local 22.

On October 2, 2010, they will board UAW sponsored buses
to attend the One Nation March in Washington, DC to
press the demand for jobs, justice, and peace.

Re: Bye, Richie: You Were No Friend To Chicago Music

This is one sided.  All of the above is true, but he
continued to support the Jazz festival, summer concerts
at the Millennium Park and the Jazz Institutes free
concerts in Chicago neighborhoods all over the city. 
Music without borders has brought in music from all
over the world that has real value and is not just some
kind of hack popular music from the dregs of some other
culture.  The Jazz series put on by the Jazz Institute
of Chicago always features a high school group first
and then the main act.  Chicago's own AACM and other
non-mainstream trends have grown in popularity
enormously as a result and they are anything but
mainstream.  Jazz in Chicago has really flourished
under Daley and this should be recognized.

Daley has been mixed.  He has continued a lot of the
oppressive policies of the old machine, but he also is
a strong supporter of urban organic agriculture and
other green initiatives.  I am on the board of Growing
Home, we work 2 urban farms (one we own) and train poor
and homeless people (especially people who have served
time).  These are also very important.  We have found
jobs for many of our graduates and continue to work on
building up a green sector in Chicago that will employ
those who have been thrown out of the economy by over
40 years of racist policies toward the urban poor.

It is important to see where things have changed so we
can fight to expand them when the next mayor (if it is
Rahm, at least he will be out of the White House...)
comes along.  Just denouncing Daley in a one sided may
feel comfortable for many, but it is too simplistic to
do much good when formulating political strategy.
