The Phelps Family Hate Train is pulling into East Arlington this Saturday, to "protest" a children's theater project. As a parent of an Arlington Center for the Arts camp counselor, need I say that I'm not too enthusiastic?
The good news is that some folks have come up with a truly great idea for turning the hate into money to fight hate. It's called the Phelps-a-Thon!
The Phelps clan will be protesting at the Arlington Center for the Arts for 45 minutes, from 1:15 PM to 2:00 PM on December 4th.
You can pledge any amount you chose for every minute they protest, or pledge a flat rate for the entire time the group will be demonstrating. Funds raised will benefit The Matthew Shepard Foundation.
That's right - for every minute they spend holding their lovely family-friendly signs and beaming hatred at the kids, the money keeps accumulating.

Sad, sorry, and irritable now that the Sox have been booted from the playoffs? There's a cure for the post-season elimination blues!
Sad to say, I don't have a kitchen this Thanksgiving. We're ripping out the walls and ceiling of the now-empty room where it stood. I don't even own an oven! So instead of my usual 24-hour cookathon, I'd like to host a Vitual Thanksging this year on Universal Hub.
I hear that there are fresh turkeys to be had in Brookline (as a public service of course!). I'll start with that. I usually cut the skin in places and shove in garlics. Then I annoint the beast with a mix of melted butter, sage, old bay, and gravy master. Stuffing contains the usual things, with some onions for flavor and water chestnuts for crunch. Sometimes, bacon or chicken sausage gets tossed in too.
What are you all going to bring for sides and desserts?
