Can't Stop the Serenity (by Suzie)

      Since 2006, fans of Joss Whedon have raised more than $160,000 for his favorite charity, Equality Now, by showing his movie "Serenity." I'll be going to one of these screenings in June. Check out the schedule.
       I've long admired Equality Now, which "works to end violence and discrimination against women and girls around the world through the mobilization of public pressure." Its site includes answers to questions submitted to Clinton and Obama.
       If you haven't already seen the video of Joss getting an award from Equality Now in 2006, you must. I insist. You'll thank me later. If nothing else, you may enjoy how he skewers insipid journalists.
