Harvest the Hope concert unites Keystone foes 
Cowboys and Indians; West coast and East Coast; brown and white; rich and poor; 8,000 people gathered on a farm owned by Art and Helen Tanderup in solidarity. The message that came from that unified voice was “No XL Pipeline.”With the weather warm and welcoming thousands of people converged on the open cornfield of the Tanderup family farm just north of Neligh, Nebraska. Headlined by Neil Young and Willie Nelson, both artists known for their activism on behalf of the small family farmers, the Harvest for Hope concert was, by all accounts a success.

Show Me the Ladies

I want movies that show women in history.  I want to see Boudicca riding her horse, slaying Romans, and defending her homeland against the greatest military force of the time.  I want to see Lady Mary Wortley Montagu doing as she pleases, becoming a pioneer as a female historian of Eastern Culture, bringing the science of inoculation to Europe, fighting off gossip, and writing searing satires of any man that tries to stop her.  I want to see Fulvia dragging her husband’s body through the streets to incite a riot and gain control of the gangs of Rome.  I want to see Pulcheria quietly and ingeniously gaining control of the Eastern Roman Empire and choosing the men through whom she would rule.  I want to see movies about women I’ve never heard about.  I want to see movies about women doing things right now that I don’t know about.  I’m tired of only seeing strong women when they’re dumping a guy or climbing the social ladder.  I want to see notable women portrayed as they were and as they are.  I want to see women portrayed as people.
