Just in time to remind some Americans that the fight for gay rights is about much more than driving Wedge IssuesTM between political parties every election year, Sean Penn and what looks to be a promising lineup of co-stars are bringing the story of San Francisco city councilman and gay activist Harvey Milk to movie screens this fall.

Great News, everyone !!!

According to a letter in AARP magazine, Lee Iaccoca has recently supported RUN THE CABINET as a way to expose McCain. 

If Obama pre-names a cabinet of true public servants and activists McCain will have to name which foxes he will be putting in charge of the chicken coops (government agencies)  Corporate media will be FORCED TO expose for the stupid “horse race”  section of the electorate the craven way the Republican Party has sold out to big-money…the way they are big money…not some cutesy cow-girl from Alaska. 

Here’s a piece of his book.  May I also invite you to familiarize yourself with the development in America of the idea of SHADOW CABINET ( practiced in Britain and it’s former empire as a way to intelligently critique the moves of the party in power…and be ready to take over !!! )

***“Glenn Hopkins is an American Original .  Names like Johnny Appleseed,  Woody Guthrie,  Will Geer,  and Walt Whitman come to mind.”        —Backstage West
                     
“A familiar figure on the Los Angles theatre scene,  Glenn Hopkins has written over twenty plays.  Melodramatic and hilarious, brash and sensitive,  frustrating yet ultimately rewarding, Hopkins writes from the heart…his integrity and purpose shine through”
                  —-Drama-Logue

Hopkins’ writing for the stage has been:

“outrageous…refreshing…intriguing…important…worthwhile.” —-The Daily Bruin

“infused with lyric imagery… billowing…lovely…fun” —-The Hollywood Reporter

This is one movie that should be really worth seeing.

I saw a documentary on Milk years ago on PBS. An interesting, yet tragic, story. I heard that Robin Williams was considered to play Milk. I look forward to seeing the Sean Penn version.
