Dear George, We are overwhelmed! we will go get the logo, naturally. Thanks also for listing us. We have been getting lots of email from America, and from remote places like Alaska. We are hoping to become an important site in Africa, especially for neighbouring countries where they are experiencing difficulties with anti-gay legislation (Zimbabwe and Zambia, in particular). Regards,

Subject: President and Mrs. Clinton Respond to the Matthew Shepard Attack
THE WHITE HOUSE Office of the Press Secretary For Immediate Release October 10, 1998 STATEMENT BY THE PRESIDENT I was deeply grieved by the act of violence perpetrated against Matthew Shepard of Wyoming. The Justice Department has assured me that local law enforcement officials are proceeding diligently to bring those responsible to justice. And I am determined that we will do everything we can and offer whatever assistance is appropriate.

Hillary and I ask that your thoughts and your prayers be with Mr. Shepard and his family, and with the people of Laramie, Wyoming. In the face of this terrible act of violence, they are joining together to demonstrate that an act of evil like this is not what our country is all about. In fact it strikes at the very heart of what it means to be an American and at the values that define us as a Nation. We must all reaffirm that we will not tolerate this.

Just this year there have been a number of recent tragedies across our country that involve hate crimes. The vicious murder of James Byrd last June in Jasper, Texas and the assault this week on Mr. Shepard are only among the most horrifying examples.

Almost one year ago I proposed that Congress enact the Hate Crimes Prevention Act. Our Federal laws already punish some crimes committed against people on the basis of race or religion or national origin, but we should do more. This crucial legislation would strengthen and expand the ability of the Justice Department to prosecute hate crimes by removing needless jurisdictional requirements for existing crimes and by giving Federal prosecutors the power to prosecute hate crimes committed because of the victim's sexual orientation, gender, or disability. All Americans deserve protection from hate.

There is nothing more important to the future of this country than our standing together against intolerance, prejudice, and violent bigotry. It is not too late for Congress to take action before they adjourn and pass The Hate Crimes Prevention Act. By doing so they will help make all Americans more safe and secure.

You are Invited Friday, Oct. 30, 7pm BARNES & NOBLES, METAIRIE on VETERANS BOOK SIGNING FOR REMI CUVIERS THE SUPERDOME MURDERS You're asking yourselves, what's Toni up to this time? Remi is a Lesbian writer living in Ill. She lived in New Orleans in the 1980s and loves it and writes about it. This is her first release and I am hoping the Gay Community here will support her. If she does well with this first signing, B & N will extend her signing tour and coverage. When she becomes rich and famous and moves back to New Orleans and we can all say, I knew her when or I was there when she first started or whatever you want to say. See you there!
