So, wait. Are we not allowed to act without a fearless leader to guide us?
I mean, I am all over (although I haven't been able to be, what with
physical therapy to remove all last traces of gimpiness and midterms)
getting together our Roe event, or Women in the Arts -- but, if we're not
able to without A Captain...?
And also, rad women, shall we try to go ahead and do something? Roe?
Women's History/Women in the Arts? Let's come up with an Action Plan. Eh?
Late night, easily wordy but not so easily active,
