WT? goes to Washington

Saturday, November 10th, 2007

Barnett in D.C. Metro

Greetings from Washington. We’re here to attend the Claim Democracy election reform conference. Picture at left is Barnett in the Metro.

We’ll be showing some of our videos and talking about the Why Tuesday? Candidate Challenge at the film festival Saturday night, and Barnett and I will be part of a panel on Sunday. Why Tuesday? advisory board member John Bonifaz will also be speaking.

Stay tuned here for liveblogging from the conference.

    Oh well… Keep up the good work.
