Good politicians for a change!

Just got the following IM from gradestillness:

The mayor of my hometown of Fort Wayne, Graham Richards, is planning to lift a strict ban on non-ear body jewelry worn by municipal workers that was placed by the former mayor. Mayor Richards feels that the laws are exclusionary to people from non-western cultures where such things are a cultural norm. He also feels that the law is too unsupporting to diversity. He feels it should be left up to department heads to decide what is and is not appropriate. Although there were newspaper articles regarding the change, i could not find any on the net, but I did find an editorial regarding it here. Please email Mayor Richards at to tell him thanks for being sensitive to the minds of those with municipal jobs.

On the other hand, certain city council members are opposed to the lift on the code, believing that this will cause the workplace to be unprofessional. If you would like to contact the city council members, either to thank those who are supporting the measure or to disagree with those who are not in favor, you can contact them through the City Council Research Assistant at

This city I live in is in a desperate need of equality when it comes to anything not conservative. Please help me by emailing the representatives.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
