@NEGEV79And this is a really thoughtful response. Thanks @disco_stu1973!
That is a very well-written and thoughtful reply. I do need to put more thought into my "replies" here.
I have the luxury of living in a neighborhood whose residents look more like a Crayola box than a blank sheet of paper. Same as my office and many of the bars that I frequent. But I also know that I can take that for granted and it is not like that everywhere and not for everyone.
I do wish I had some constructive ideas. But when you are not attracted to a lot of what comes from the far left or pretty much anything coming from the right, it starts to get real weird in the middle. So I apologize for taking away from what was a good article with my short sighted ramblings about 'equality' over 'equity'.
Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed just about $1,500,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
