***THUR APRIL 12 at 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM ***RALLY TO SAVE THE US POSTAL SERVICE! *** The U.S. Senate is currently considering legislation that could completely dismantle the United States Postal Service as we know it. This Republican-backed bill would phase out door-to-door mail service and eliminate Saturday delivery altogether, which could leave as many as 200,000 postal service employees without a job. On Thursday, join the National Association of Letter Carriers for a statewide Day of Action to save the U.S. Postal Service! Demonstrations will take place from 4-530pm outside every US Senate office in the state, and all are encouraged to come out and call on our Senators to vote against this flawed legislation. WHERE:  Rallies at the Offices of Senator Barbara Boxer:  600 B Street, Suite 2240, San Diego, CA 92101 - 4 to 5:30pm   &  Rallies at the offices of Senator Dianne Feinstein:  750 B Street, Suite 1030 San Diego, CA 92101 - 4 to 5:00pm   For more information about the rallies, email [address removed]. Learn more about the right-wing attacks on the USPS.  Info: F.

ROOSEVELT DINNER "  MEET JOURNALIST  CHRIS MOONEY and Author of  THE REPUBLICAN WAR ON SCIENCE will be our KEYNOTE Speaker at our 32nd Annual Roosevelt Dinner. "  Chris Mooney hit the nail on the head when he wrote: "It often seems there are so many factually wrong claims on the political right that those who make them live in a different reality. So here's an idea: Maybe they actually do."  In his newest book, "The Republican Brain," journalist Mooney explores brain scans, polls, and psychology experiments that explain why conservatives oppose new ideas and refuse to let facts affect their beliefs.  We are pleased to welcome him to San Diego in just over two weeks as the keynote speaker for this year's Roosevelt Dinner! RSVP today to reserve your seat:  www.sddemocrats.org/dinner  We'll also be honoring individuals and organizations who have made tremendous contributions to our Democratic community, including Mickey Foster (Making a Difference Award); Lori Kern-Greenberg (Volunteer of the Year); Phil Hanneman (Leadership Award); the Pacific Beach Democratic Club (Club of the Year); Assemblymember Ben Hueso (Legislator of the Year); and Eric Banks, Marilee McLean, Carlos Marquez, and the American Federation of Teachers Local 1931 (Chair's Awards).  The early-bird rate of $95 per ticket is only available for a few more days, so be sure to sign up now. As the largest annual fundraiser to help our County Party elect candidates up and down the ticket in 2012, the Roosevelt Dinner is a great way for you to support Democrats while enjoying a memorable evening among friends.  For more information, feel free to call our office at (858)[masked] or email [address removed].
