commented on Scientology Exposed
Another great book is Inside Scientology by Janet Reitman, which is only about a year or so old. Haven't read Wright's book yet, but that book has a great journalistic take on the church as well. And Kate Bornstein's A Queer and Pleasant Danger is wonderfully sad and inspiring at the same time.
commented on Gunman Opens Fire Inside the Twilight Exit
The Twilight has been my favorite Seattle bar for over 12 years (through two different moves). As such, the folks there feel like part of my community of friends. Wishing the two injured folks--esp. the door person who was injured, who I'm assuming I must have known--nothing but speedy recovery and comfort in this time of confusion and hurt.
Trollers, please just stop.

Add to that the challenges in reaching some sort of consensus around goals of such an action, what accomplishing those goals might look like and how to keep folks unified behind those goals, and you've got a whole other level of potential clusterfuckery.
But if folks were willing to take on such challenges, I think an action like this could be something.
