I'm here, I'm here! I didn't know about this forum and it's taken me a day to get registered.
Thanks, skdadl, for your support. I really appreciate it. All of the support has been quite overwhelming, actually. I mean, I sent an email to a few close friends, one national feminist listserv and posted at enMasse, (which seems to have become weird, btw).
My blog has been viewed more than 1300 times in 36 hours. That's up 100X from the usual. I blogged a followup to the original post with A lesson in blogging
which includes a portion of skdadl's comment and links to a Boycott Bacardi site and an article at The Nation.
BTW, one of the commenters, Mr. Arnason, appears to be someone who works at the Prairie Dog's sister publication Planet S. At least he's posting from that site. What's uncomfortable for me is that the Publisher of both and the Editor at S were friends from university days and I think they may be taking this personally, which was not my intent. I respect what they've done to give SK people the two mags. But their feminist content and ad policy are lacking.
Anyway, I'm here, good women, hopefully safe, and to stay. :D
