...and just one more little thing


if you're checkin' us out you know about the lil' jesuit dude, uh, alex...

i just want you to know how lucky tennessee is to have this new york city boy down here ... i mean really lucky!

this is the first time that tcask ever applied for a jesuit volunteer to work in our office... and i knew nothing about how to identify the person we needed from the pool of possible volunteers ... i mean i've had years of management experience with kinko's and hr experience in offices but this is kinda different, ferreal...

so the jv corps south sent me alex's application and he looks great on paper (almost all of the applicants will) ... and we talked for over an hour - it was more of a talk than an interview really ...

and in the end we both contacted the office and said "yes" to whether or not we'd work together ...



but i'll tell ya, this is a very unique office, issue and environment to work in ... this is in no way shape or form a service delivery agency, it is an organizer's gig ... and alex had interned for assemblyperson benjamin in ny, organized for the afl-cio, been involved with soa watch for years, and organized students for kucinich on his binghamton campus ...


perhaps alex really chose us moreso than i chose him and than god...

or perhaps, and the irony won't be lost on everyone here, it was divine intervention that sent this hard-working, spirited, morally upright human being down here ... not to me (she doesn't have the time to fool around with worrying about me) but to tennessee ...

when you say your prayers tonight in tennessee (or elsewhere) keep young master alex (and his family) in yer heart ... we are blessed ...

peace out - <3
