Just got my latest Music for America email update last night, and I was reminded to tell you all about them, in case you're not familiar with one of the most fun ways to get engaged in politics. MfA spreads the word of issue-based activism (for example, they're talking about fair elections and rising school debt) through live music, large and small, and through online community. Plus, their emails crack me up -- this week they said, "Happy 4th! Hope you still have your fingers!"
