A petition to let the Green Party into the debate

It's been shown that once a party is allowed into the televised debates, their support can soar. It's what happened to the Reform Party. People just need to see them deliver their message. The Green Party already has 11% support in Toronto. It's the only party gaining support in the Ontario race. And yet, they're not letting the Green Party leader into the debates. Fair? No. So please sign the petition at www.letfrankin.ca

(Sorry for this posting not being funny. The environment is just too serious an issue to make light off. However, if you've been good and signed the petition, you can turn on some clown music and go back and read the posting again, while listening to clown music. The posting will be funny that way.)

My marriage proposal's on ecorazzi.com!!!

Holy crap!!! Check out this amazing promotion of my marriage proposal by clicking here. It looks like it was put up on August 23rd. I had no idea it was there, though. I only just found it now because I was googling "Josh Rachlis" and "Jay Leno" and this link popped up for some reason. Anyway, all I can say is... WOW!!!! Thanks so much to ecorazzi for joining the cause. I will for sure reserve a whole ecorazzi table at my wedding to Laurie David if, I mean WHEN, it happens. There's even a comment at the post, from "rebecca," who mentions my An Inconvenient Ruth movie (which I made for Laurie's eco-film contest a while back). If Laurie doesn't see my proposal now, I don't know WHAT she's doing with her time. Other than devoting every waking minute to fighting global warming, I mean.

Oh, and check this out. People are reviewing the ecorazzi posting at this other page. Michael from Pensacola (known online as "moreminimal") writes: "Funniest thing I've seen all week. Laurie, you should at least go out with this guy. Who knows?" It's a great feeling to know that I've got the support of Pensacola, Florida behind me. And I'm sure Laurie has great respect for moreminimal's opinion because he's obviously got great taste in comedy and in men. So this could work out great.

(Oh, and why was I googling "Josh Rachlis" and "Jay Leno," you ask? Well, an account guy at work here just mentioned that a creative director at work mentioned that she heard that my marriage proposal was mentioned on Jay Leno's show. I said that the creative director must have misunderstood. But I googled it, just in case. And I found the ecorazzi post. Which proves that you never know what's out there! So maybe I've been on Leno after all and just don't know it yet...)

My letter in today's Star about MMP

Click here to read my letter in today's Toronto Star about the misconceptions surrounding the Mixed-Member Proportional election system we'll be voting for (or against) in the upcoming Ontario election. MMP will mean your vote will count for more. It will also help the environment, because parties that actually care about the environment will actually earn seats and be able to make positive changes for all of us. So make sure to get out and vote in October... and vote for MMP!

Vote for MMP
