11/17/08: Triclops! appearance archived on

11/15/08: Change is here! Biafra for Treasury Secretary!

If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible, who still questions Jello Biafra's ability to bring about change to this country, today is your answer.


In his 1979 San Francisco mayoral campaign, Jello pledged to make businessmen wear clown suits within city limits. Right about now might be a good time to reconsider his proposal. Watch out, Hank Paulson! Gird your loins, Wall Street! Treasury Secretary Jello Biafra has a nice ring to it, no?

Well, actually, the clowns in the photo are not businessmen. They're real clowns from the Big Apple Circus invited to ring the opening bell at NYSE. Read about it here in the NY Post. But yes we can believe that Jello had the right idea, dammit.

11/03/08: Voting problems? Call 1-866-OUR VOTE

Just a quick note for those of you in the US who are voting on election day. We're sure you've been hearing about voter suppression efforts and cranky voting machines that are plaguing the process already.

Before you go to your polling place (here's a Google Maps mashup if you need to find your location), double check your state's ID requirements and make sure to bring proper documents. Just in case, program this number into your cell: 866-687-8683 (866-OUR-VOTE). That's the hotline number for Election Protection, a non-partisan coalition who provides voter info and advice as well as collect data on irregularities. The Spanish language hotline is 1-888-Ve-Y-Vota.

Happy voting!
