Auction for WAM! (by Suzie)

An auction to benefit Women, Action & the Media is almost over. Check out the incredible merch, including a guitar autographed by Aimee Mann and a poster signed by Marge Piercy.

One caveat: My church used this auction service, and I paid almost $300 for a balloon ride, only to find that my church got little or nothing. If you want to make sure WAM! gets all the money you pay, go for the feminist items, not the generic ones. (If I get a clarification from WAM!, I'll post it.)

To get you in the mood, you can hear Marge Piercy reading "To Be of Use." Here are the opening lines:
The people I love the best
jump into work head first
without dallying in the shallows
and swim off with sure strokes almost out of sight.
