Things that are not OK

The anti-gay crowd behind California's most contentious ballot measure, Proposition 8, is already lying in their all-out fear campaign. Now it just got a whole lot uglier:
Donors who gave money to the No on Prop 8 campaign say they received blackmail letters demanding money, and the Yes on 8 campaign now says the letters were sent by their employees.

The letter from Yes on 8 came by certified mail, demanding at least $10,000. ...

The letter says if Jim doesn't give an equal donation to Yes on 8, the name of his company will be published. It reads in part, "It is only fair for Proposition 8 supporters to know which companies and organizations oppose traditional marriage."
What I'd like to say about this is unsuitable for publication. So instead I'll say this:

Donate. Whatever you can, even if it's only a few dollars. I pulled some cash from my floundering investments and gave $50.

Blackmail is simply beyond the pale, all the more so when it exposes the true face of a campaign that allegedly claims to be about "values." Make Yes on 8's evil actions hurt. Send them crawling back under their rocks.

Educate yourself. Talk to your California friends and family. If you live in California, talk to neighbors and coworkers.

This is the single most critical issue facing California voters. Polls are within the margin of error. Make a difference.
