Follow-up to Stephanie McMillian post

Hi all, and thanks for your comments on the cartoon. Stephanie McMillan did indeed have a paypal button up to help defray the costs of increased bandwidth due to the incredible popularity of this particular cartoon. However, it seems she's all set on that now and has removed the button.

I would like to draw your attention to the fact that she is now auctioning off the original cartoon on ebay. The proceeds from this auction will be split equally between the following two places:

1) Planned Parenthood of Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and

2) Cangleska, Inc on behalf of The Oglala Sioux Tribe at Pine Ridge, South Dakota. Their President, Cecilia Fire Thunder, has recently confirmed that the planned project for a women's reproductive health clinic to be built on the Pine Ridge reservation is going ahead. It will be called Sacred Choices.

Donations can also be made to either organization. More information is on the ebay listing, as well as images of letters from the two organizations.

For more information, visit Stephanie's livejournal.

Thanks for reading!

Today's fragrance: Stella (by Stella McCartney) EDP. When I first tried this one I wrote it off as another pretty rose scent. Lovely, but nothing to write home about. Was I ever wrong. Maybe it's just Spring in the air, but I've been wearing this one a lot lately and I'm loving it. It's beautiful, not ovewhelming but with a definite presence. The more I wear it the more I find in there. Was that lemonade? Do I smell tea? It's surprisingly complex without seeming to be so. This may very well be a Spring HG!

From Neiman Marcus: • For the top notes, the rose essence fused with peony flower and drops of mandarin essence provide a seductive combination. • For the heart note, the rose absolute reveals a more intense facet.• For the base note, the mystery of amber creates an addictive sensation of sensuality.

Thanks! I went to her site after reading your post the other day. If I didn't have Sniffa and a couple other things coming up, I'd be bidding on that auction!

Great post! Someone forwarded me a link to a site about the SD clinic plans. I was so impressed with this. Unfortunately, I also read that the state attorney general is trying to argue that any clinic would be illegal if the abortion provider was not native american or something like that...which sounds like a load of shit.

Thanks for posting this. I think I'll give Bill Napoli a call and urge my friends to do so as well. It's good to know that Bill Napoli is so willing to do the thinking for all of us poor, helpless wittle females.

That cartoon just flew through the 'net. I saw it here first but later that day I received no fewer than 3 forwarded emails with it attached.
