I Wish I Had a Che Guevara Gap T-Shirt

Ronny put together an awesome do-gooder playlist. (I just took the GRE & was studying for the last coupla weeks. I did terrible, but at least I developed a love for math in the process. Thank you, Danica McKellar!)

This week Ronny and I watched Reds, an 80's movie written and directed by Warren Beatty. It's about a journalist who wants to be part of the Russian revolution beyond just writing about it. Of course the revolutionaries become as bad as, if not worse than, the powers they overthrow. It's disheartening: humans doing the same horrible things again and again.

But I found hope (again) in our leftist folk show playlist. You can stream it online for the next week. Happy listening!
