Some will say that humor should not be applied to serious situations. This article is another way to look at the use of humor.

The Evergreen Jewish Cultural Center would like to invite you to Friday night services at 7:00pm in Sem II B2105 with a discussion on Radical Amazement. We have been looking to establish a minyan on campus for some time now and the last two times have been very meaningful.
This event is open to all Jewish students, faculty, alumni and anyone else interesting in learning about Judaism. This event is also open to the Olympia Community.
We plan to continue hosting Minyan on a bi-weekly basis and look forward to seeing you there.
We thank you in advance for your support and would also like to remind you of the weekly JCC meetings on Wednesday at 3:30pm in Sem II E2105.
B'Shalom, Daniel, Garion and Jonathan Evergreen JCC

Olympia, WA No NAIS Rally
At the Capital Steps
Friday, February 24 11 am to 1 pm
Join Washington residents this Friday to say NO! to NAIS! The goal is to educate people, make our voices heard, hand out fliers, talk to the media hopefully, etc. No animals permitted. No signs permitted inside the building. Please come, bring 4-H, FFA members and other children who will loose these programs if this goes into effect! Make appointments to see your elected officials and learn if they oppose NAIS - if not then educate them! This is our best hope at defeating NAIS, a system that would destroy small farms and the owning of all types of animals and livestock. Keep it basic and peaceful. Most of all make your presence felt.
The National Animal Identification System (NAIS) is a national program to identify and track livestock animals, including poultry, horses, cattle, goats and sheep for the purpose of disease containment. NAIS plans to use RFID and GPS technology to track animals, and requires every farm or “premises

The chief rabbi, Sir Jonathan Sacks, is right. His reaction to the Anglican synod's call for sanctions against Israel is understandable. Hatred of Judaism - now commonly called anti-semitism - is a virus that has infected Christendom for two millennia. It continues to stalk the world despite its most virulent outbreak in Nazi Germany. It should not be left untreated. For too many it remains the unlearned lesson of the Holocaust. It should haunt decent Christians for generations to come.
If I feel all that in my guts and know it in my head, I cannot stand by and watch the Israeli-Palestinian conflict - one of the world's most dangerous outbreaks of collective hatred - as a dispassionate onlooker. I cannot listen calmly when an Iranian president talks of wiping out Israel. Jewish fears go deep. They are not irrational. But I cannot listen calmly either when a great many citizens of Israel think and speak of Palestinians in the way a great many Germans thought and spoke about Jews when I was one of them and had to flee.
Next Monday, February 27, the Olympia Port Commission will consider changes in its SEPA procedures. Sounds bureaucratic but this could result in a major new impediment to citizen involvement in environmental decisions at the Port. Worse, it could set a precedent for other governments to further restrict the ability of citizens to play a meaningful environmental role.
The meeting will begin at 5:30 at the Commission meeting room on the second floor of the Market Centre Building. The Market Center Building is across from the public market. Entrance to the second floor is in the breezeway between the two buildings that comprise the Market Centre.
Based on materials presented at the last Port Commission meeting, it is highly likely that the Commission will vote to impose significant fees for filing appeals of Port Commission decisions. In other words, they will make it far more difficult for citizens to challenge their recent decisions to ignore the State Environmental Policy Act by declaring several major actions to be "non-significant". These include the Weyerhaeuser contract, the planned dredging of Budd Inlet, and the expansion of the airport.
I have written the Port to request copies of the proposed SEPA regulations. I will send these out if I get them before leaving town on Wednesday for three days.
Otherwise, call the Port to request copies be sent to you by e-mail. The phone is: (360) 528-8000
