“A sudden bold and unexpected question doth many times surprise a man and lay him open.”

– Francis Bacon

As I walk through

This wicked world

Searchin for light in the darkness of insanity.

I ask myself

Is all hope lost?

Is there only pain and hatred, and misery?

And each time I feel like this inside,

There's one thing I wanna know:

What's so funny bout peace love & understanding? ohhhh

What's so funny bout peace love & understanding?

Mid Level Position:

I live in Chicago, Illinois. I am currently self-employed and focusing on projects with small businesses and not-for-profit organizations. I have a B.S. in Broadcast Journalism and a M.S in Integrated Marketing Communications. I was recently laid off from a press position in the Press Office of Mayor Richard M. Daley. I would like to keep moving forward in my career as an integrated marketing communications professional, utilizing my experience in journalism, public relations, event planning and entertainment. I'm looking for a position that would allow me to grow and learn more in the area of business development, crafting strategic messages and event planning. I would like to work in a boutique or not-for-profit environment. I have a wide range of experience that ranges from sales and financial services to education and music entertainment. In addition I've planned several small scale outreach events in and around Chicago, IL. I would be open to relocating to Washington DC, Atlanta GA, San Francisco CA, Dallas TX, or New York NY. Please contact me at ajanamb2@aol.com. Thank you.

Truly,

Ajana Boone

*** From Randy Garsee:

Thank you for all you do.

I've never e-mailed you before, but I just wanted to say thanks for the newsletters. I was fired from a job three years ago and a friend who works for SAIC gave me your newsletter and I subscribed to it.

When I've needed your newsletter, it's always been there for me. I've had a number of job offers through your newsletter… including my current job.

I'm working as a civilian journalist for the U.S. Marines aboard Al Asad Air Base in Iraq's Al Anbar Province.

So this is just a note to say thanks for your efforts. Sometimes, it changes lives!

Sincerely yours,

Randy Garsee

IIMEF (FWD) Public Affairs

Al Asad Air Base

Al Anbar Province.

(Randy, Is there anything our network can do for you?)

Ned,

Sir, you do quite a bit now. That's why I wanted to thank you.

If you'd like to direct people to my blog, they can see some of the work I do for the Marines. They'll also see reports from Iraq they haven't seen in the mainstream media. http://randygarsee.blogspot.com

Thanks again.

For everything.

Respectfully,

Randy

*** How I spent Halloween:

Our Troop helped an Eagle Scout candidate with his Eagle Scout Leadership Service Project on Saturday. Appropriate for Halloween, we cleaned up a grave site in our neighborhood I never even knew was there. Apparently this area in Northern Virginia has numerous family, military and slave gravesites—300 to 400 of them in Fairfax County alone—according to Mary Lipsey with the Fairfax County History Commission as president of the Fairfax County Cemetery Preservation Association (FCCPA) (www.honorfairfaxcemeteries.org). The overgrown Grimsley Family site is mentioned on the FCCPA website. I’ve posted a few photos of the graves at www.nedsjotw.com. What’s interesting about this small lot is that nobody owns it. The County is investigating the ownership of the property. In 2000, the Board of Supervisors minutes stated that if no owner could be found the County would take steps to acquire it.

Some of the markers are big and readable, but others much less so. Throughout the day we would find more markers or footstones. Because nobody owns it, and the graves cannot be seen from the road, it has become a dump site for dirt and brush. We carefully removed the piles of dirt to see if we could find more markers underneath.

During the day we were joined by Alan and Diana Taylor. Alan is a descendant of Tabitha Grimsley, a third great grand nephew. Tabitha’s sister was Elizabeth Hall, who was married to a man who originally owned what later became the Keene Mill (http://www.hmdb.org/marker.asp?marker=104). Today, Old Keene Mill Road is one of the biggest thoroughfares in Springfield. Apparently, in 1855, Hall and Keene had some disagreement and Keene stabbed him, then invited the witness to the knifing into his house for a drink while Hall was dying (but not before giving a statement that helped send Keene to prison with a sentence of hanging). These talk about the mill and the murder: http://www.travbuddy.com/travel-blogs/15690/Suburban-Archaeology-1-Trail-Keenes-52; http://www.greentreevillage.net/complete_manual/about.pdf. The latter also talks about Keene’s pardoning by the governor.

The largest and oldest marker on the site marks the grave of James Grimsley. His brother (we think), Augustine, voted against secession, but another nearby Grimsley, M. L. Grimsley, voted in favor of secession. “In the Agricultural census of 1860 in Fairfax County, James Grimsely listed owning one horse, three cattle and 12 hogs in his personal property tax. No slaves were mentioned,” according to Lipsey.

Tabitha’s grave marker says:

Tabitha

Wife of James Grimsley

In the 71st year of her age

Our mother here lies under ground,

The dearest friend we ever found;

But through the Lord’s unbounded love,

We’ll meet again in the realms above.

Our Scouts are considering adopting the site and maintaining it. We’re also looking at putting a fence railing and sign in the front to discourage dumping, and to remind people in our community of this part of our heritage.

37.) Communications Manager, Sunlight Foundation, Washington, DC

The Sunlight Foundation is looking to hire an extroverted news junkie to join our team. (Technically, the official job title is Communications Manager.) Is this you?

■You are passionate about opening up public access to the government and creating more transparency in Washington, DC.

■You want more than anything to see Sunlight’s work and spokespeople cited by the mainstream press and in blogs like Talking Points Memo, Boing Boing and Townhall.com.

■You know the lingo of bloggers.

■You can know how to make a story idea work for CNN producers.

■You’ve written and successfully pitched press releases, op-eds and editorial board memos.

■You have a minimum of three to five years of experience working with reporters and/or bloggers.

■You have excellent writing, editing and verbal communications skills.

■You might not be a policy wonk, but you know your way around the alphabet soup of acronyms like GAO, CRS, FCC and LOC – as well as the legislative process.

■You are experienced in organizing outreach campaigns – preferably in a fast-paced advocacy and politically-oriented setting.

■You’re not technophobic. You don’t have to be a database hack (we have those on staff already), but you’re familiar with basic HTML, WordPress, Microsoft Office and Google docs.

Sunlight is a great place to work with generous benefits, but more than that – we are on the cutting edge of policy, technology and communications. We are a non-partisan non-profit dedicated to a great cause of creating more transparency and accountability in government, and our work has support across the political spectrum. Your starting salary at a firm may be higher, but your cachet after working at Sunlight will be unrivaled. This job is a great opportunity to build your own notoriety in the non-profit, political and technology sectors.

Application requirements

Please submit a cover letter, resume and three writing samples. Principals only, please — we prefer not to work with headhunters or placement agencies.
