Plainfield Greyhound Update

A couple days ago, I posted here an email I had recevied about the Greyhounds of Plainfield Connecticut. In following up, I found this news about what is going on:

"Great news! The greyhounds at the Plainfield, CT track that is closing Are no longer under a May 15th deadline"

"It is still unknown how many dogs are at the track, and of those how many will be continuing to race at other tracks, and how many will need to be placed in homes."

They point out that the email which has been circulating is outdated and no longer has accurate information. However, they do encourage people to continue trying to find homes for the greyhounds and other pets at sites such as www.petfinder.org.

Extreme Democracy

Last year, I wrote a chapter for the book Extreme Democracy. My chapter, like several others, dealt with DeanSpace. DeanSpace has now evolved into CivicSpace, and is being used for many non-profits, campaigns, and even businesses. Two examples that are particularly important to me are DeStefano for CT, and Toomre Capital Markets.

The book has been available for download for quite a while. Now it is available as a book at http://www.lulu.com/content/125298. Pick up a copy today!
