Frontline Warrior

From fighting AIDS with ACT UP in New York  and helping found Lesbian Avengers– Anne-christine d’Adesky’s new memoir casts fresh light on epic battles

Anne-christine d’Adesky got arrested, accidentally, long before it happened on purpose during AIDS protests. The Pulitzer Prize-nominated journalist was covering civil disobedience at a nuclear facility in 1982 when she was approached by a suspicious policeman. Despite assuring him that she was covering the demonstration for Ms. magazine, the officer arrested her anyway.

May I Be Happy, May I Be Well

This morning we studied a Bible story about Pinchas. He used violence to stop a plague that God brought upon the Israelites because of their behaviors with the local people. In response to his violent act, God gave him the blessing of eternal shalom, peace. Such a strange reward for a very violent act. What does this story teach? That if you act violently, with God in mind, that you are doing the correct thing? I sure do hope not. We see too much of this in the news everyday.

So if anybody wants to get me something, get me 60 crabs – one for each year. I don’t want no diamonds, I don’t want no shoes, I don’t want no party. I want some crabs.– Patti LaBelle

Maryland is known for many things like our own Baltimore based baseball team (Orioles), our own football team (Ravens), hot steamy humidity, horse racing, beautiful golf courses and much much more like our Baltimore Flamingos Rugby Team along with Baltimore’s own Beehive Hon ladies. We may be challenged, but no one can challenge us for having awesome Maryland crabs.

Removal Proceedings in the US

Removal proceedings (also called “hearings”) in the US are conducted by the Executive Office for Immigration Review (“EOIR”), Office of Immigration Court (“IC”). An immigration judge is an employee of EOIR and, generally, is a lawyer who has experience in immigration law prior to becoming a judge. Immigration Courts preside over cases within their geographical jurisdiction, i.e., the Baltimore IC handles all cases for persons who live within the State of Maryland; the Newark IC handles all cases for persons who live within the State of New Jersey, etc. If a person decides to move to a location outside of the geographical jurisdiction of the IC handling their case, the case is sent to the IC which does have jurisdiction. This is called a “change of venue” and can be done by a motion to the IC asking for the change from either the person in removal proceedings or by the Office of Chief Counsel.

Remember the days when everything was paper and you had file cabinets to organize all that paper, or it was in boxes with no organization? Today we likely have those same disorganized drives on our electronic devices. With all these electronic documents, I find having a good organizational system for them is essential. Not only does it make it easier to find things, but it helps reduce recreating things because you cannot find them.
