Mar 30/Seattle: "Female Faces of War"

The documentary film “Female Faces of War: The Untold Story” on the impact of the Iraq war on women: Tuesday, March 30, 2010  4:00-6:00 p.m.  Room 127, UW Law School. There is no admission charge.
I've seen it, and it's well worth your time!

"The effects of the Iraq war on women are grossly overlooked. This film features personal stories of a mother who lost a child to the war, a female soldier traumatized by Military Sexual Trauma, and refugees displaced by the war. This moving 48 minute documentary has been featured in the Amnesty International Film Festival and a forum at the Seattle Art Museum."

Executive Producer: Moni T. Law
Narrated by: La’Chris Jordan
Original music by: Nan Avant

So God is Tending Bar, and in walks ...

... a Creationist, a believer in Intelligent Design, and an Evolutionary Biologist.

"Whatdya wanta drink?" He says.

The Creationist says, "I don't want anything more than 6000 years old."

The Intelligent Design fan says, "I'm o.k. with something older than that, so long as you've been tinkering with the brew the whole time."

The Evolutionary Biologist says, "First off, I complement ya, you keep your place spotless; you haven't left a fingerprint anywhere!"
