Frank Joyce, a lifelong political activist, heads the board of a media production nonprofit supporting the anti-hate movement Not In Our Town (NIOT).

About the book:
As young adults in the 1960s and 1970s, the nine people featured in this book—including co-editor Frank Joyce, Rennie Davis, Judy Gumbo, Alex Hing, and others—worked to end the U.S. war in Vietnam. Independently of each other, while the United States was still at war, nearly all of them travelled to North Vietnam, risking physical harm and charges of treason back home.
In 2013, they all revisited Vietnam in a trip organized by the editors of this book. The People Make the Peace presents their reflections on those experiences, providing thoughtful and well informed reflections on a war and an era that deeply affected the United States and the world.

PATRICE O'NEILL, EXECUTIVE PRODUCER
Co-founder of The Working Group, Patrice O'Neill has produced successful national series on PBS for fifteen years. The Working Group's 1995 story of how the town of Billings, Montana, responded to a rash of hate crimes, Not In Our Town set a new standard for television impact. What began as a half-hour PBS special has turned into a national movement. In collaboration with the Independent Media Institute and Benton Foundation, O'Neill led an unprecedented outreach campaign featuring screenings and town hall meetings in hundreds of communities nation-wide. The resulting grassroots campaign against hate and intolerance gained the endorsement of city councils, schools, churches, legislatures, labor unions, and civic organizations across the country and it continued with a second television special, Not In Our Town II. The Not In Our Town campaign continues in communities around the country to this day. In 2005, TWG partnered with KQED-TV to produce the first-ever regional Not In Our Town Special, Not In Our Town Northern California: When Hate Happens Here. A new national Not In Our Town special is planned for 2006.

What I am suggesting is probably similar to a BLACK HOLE for Politics. We haven’t been there yet - probably can’t get there yet - information about this idea of mine is limited - and my idea is held to what I say it can be on Blog Talk Radio. neat, isn’t this. CONSISTENT: I have been consistent in what I say - it isn’t stubbornness, it is thought-out, preliminary, progression and ( hold on - stand & deliver, maintain speed & heading) steps. When a chef creates or makes a dish/meal, he/she thinks of/imagines ingredients - which are condiments/spices & complements: nuts/squash/cherries/ ketchup/ cheeses. So do I. You try not to burn the meal/try to delight the quests’ palettes/experiences/try to keep your rating/quality/exquisiteness/truth to the meal & profession. What is Presidency's profession? Have we seen it in its entirety splendor & excellence. How many Presidents were excellent. I want to start a present cycle of high attainable standards. I can because of who I have become/made to become. I am ready/able for this job: 2B President in where it counts, not perception. See a different perception: someone confi-dent, taking up the best ahead of us - taking points unheard of before me. It’s a win idea. Can the postulator pull it off, niot just with 120 milion Write-Ins, with doing & succeeding in what he says. Let’s get on with it. Some of what I say sounds foreign, but we are not foreigners when we are collect ourselves. These are the balances&checks. When you see the proof in what I say, my checks&balances, my 2nd/3rd reflections, in not disappointing or going on a goose chase are on. I will c2it that we will do good with me in the White House and you along side of me, even coming into the White House to talk and fine tune what we are doing. bwell, Curt Clinton.
