    assembled another evening of wonderment performed by
    Baltimore’s wackiest talent. You’ll be sent on a wild
    hunt and blasted right out of your seats into

    laughs that even gravity won’t be able to keep you

    Dear Friends,

    In case you are not already aware, this Saturday is LiveEarth – 7 concerts on 7 continents, on 7/7/07 — to call attention internationally to the issue of Global Warming. The concert on our continent is happening in NJ. However, do not despair, smile. You can attend the concert, either in the comfort of your own home. . .

    All day on the internet, thru MSN
    http://liveearth. msn.com/? GT1=10227

    or 8-11 pm on tv, thru NBC

    . . . .or at a neighbor’s house. Two organizations, LiveEarth and MoveOn, are hosting house parties. You just click the links below and type in your zipcode, to find a house party near you. At the MoveOn house parties, you will also be able to watch a prerecorded video of all the Presidential Candidate’s views on Climate Change, and then the next day go online and vote for which candidate’s opinion you liked the best.

    Here are the two links:

    http://friendsofliv eearth.com/ page/event/ search_simple (Live Earth, currently 38 parties listed for MD/DC/VA)

    http://pol.moveon. org/event/ events/index. html?action_ id=86&id (MoveOn, currently 23 parties listed for MD/DC/VA)

    In addition, if you plan to go into DC on Saturday for the Folk Life Festival, you can go over to the National Museum of American Indians and watch the concert on huge outdoor screens.
    http://www.nmai. si.edu/motherear th/

    If I sound excited, I am! Hopefully this event will have a lot of “popular” appeal and will attract a wide audience, beyond just the usual “tree huggers” like us!

    Hope you’ll tune in.

    Lore Rosenthal
    Laurel, MD
