Wisdom, street smarts on offer at 9/12 @Real_PHIL_Talks at @Space55

How often have you wondered, what makes that famous lecture series so popular, anyway? TED Talks may have a lot going for them, but Phoenix has a few lessons up its own — short — sleeve. This week, get ready to be blown away by Arizona’s own … PHIL Talks.

PHIL stands for Phoenicians Have Ideas – Live! It takes us beyond the “experts” and people with “information.” Instead, hear from people with enthusiasm and a can-do attitude! Your life may never be the same again.

I am pleased to say I’ll be emceeing the evening at Space 55 in downtown Phoenix. I have not seen the 10 speeches, but I’m PHILLed with anticipation — and yes, the writing will be better than that.

Come on out to hear what PHIL Talks promise: “stuff worth saying.” It can’t get better than that.

Tickets and details are here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1456673807944525/

"As a Republic dedicated to liberty and justice for all, this Nation cannot deny equal status to women."

On August 22, 1974, President Ford signed a proclamation designating August 26 as Women’s Equality Day. That date honored the incorporation of the Nineteenth Amendment, which guaranteed women the right to vote, into the Constitution on August 26, 1920.

In the proclamation President Ford noted his previous backing of the Equal Rights Amendment and his intention to continue supporting it. “Today I want to reaffirm my personal commitment to that amendment,” he stated. “The time for ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment has come just as surely as did the time for the 19th Amendment.”

Representatives Yvonne Brathwait Burke (D-Calif), Barbara Jordan (D-Tex), Elizabeth Holtzman (D-NY), Marjorie S. Holt (R-Md), Leonor K. Sullivan (D-Mo), Cardiss Collins (D -Ill), Corinne C. Boggs (D-La), Margaret M. Heckler (R-Mass), Bella S. Abzug (D-NY), Shirley Chisholm (D-NY), Ella T. Grasso (D-Conn), Patricia Schroeder (D-Colo), and Patsy T. Mink (D-Hawaii) attended the signing ceremony held in the Cabinet Room. First Lady Betty Ford and Anne Armstrong, Counsellor to the President, were also present for the signing.

There is a Pope in the Cars universe. This means that there is Catholic Christianity, which means there was a Jesus car who was crucified. Jesus Chrysler was crucified by car Romans under Pontiac Pilot who washed his wheels. A car was nailed to a cross and ascended to Heaven.
