- Picture: Sick of advertising images of women, Carly Stasko began publishing the media zine Uncool, at the age of 16, and now uses pens and stickers to discreetly alter the messages on subway billboards. She’s one of the heroes of Jill Sharpe’s documentary Culture Jam, which previews at 7 p.m. Sunday, September 15, 2002, at the Independent Media Center, 1415 Third Avenue downtown.

- On August 24, the Rolling Thunder Down Home Democracy Tour came to Renton, bringing not only music and entertainment but educational workshops on everything from globalization and healthcare to law enforcement and engineered food. Political discussions and statements – like the above against the impending war on Iraq – are at the center of the touring show, which was founded by Texan political agitator Jim Hightower.

CORRECTION: In our interview with Buck Bagot last issue (“Power before Policy,” August 22-Sept. 4), we quoted him as stating that the U.S. Post Office falls under the HUD, VA, and Independent Agencies Committee in the House of Representatives. He didn’t say that, because it’s not true; we misunderstood. We hope that didn’t mess up your day.
