All Entries Are In

As promised, there will be no more extensions. Unfortunately, we never received the promised video (there is always next year) be we did receive a record number of entries and the quality is tremendous!

We have decided that in order to give our readers time to comment and our judges time to review all entries, we will hold off announcing a winner until November 26.

Please post any charitable comments on the contest below.

Just for fun, we also have established a mechanism for readers to vote for their favorites. Please vote in our Readers Poll to your immediate right.

It will be interesting to see if our esteemed judges, Sean Dailey and Jill Stanek, agree with our fan poll!


Here are the contestants:

The Killed Story by Chris Chan

The Anonymous Haikus by Reader of the Heart Mind and Strength Blog

The Catholic Caveman's Entry by the Catholic Caveman

Such a Loving Margaret Sanger by Bill Haley

Ms. Margaret and the Klan by Carrie Tomko

Thank you all participants for your great efforts!

From Margaret Sanger: An Autobiography, P.366:

Always to me any aroused group was a good group, and therefore I accepted an invitation to talk to the women's branch of the Ku Klux Klan...As someone came out of the hall I saw through the door dim figures parading with banners and illuminated crosses. I waited another twenty minutes. It was warmer and I did not mind so much. Eventually the lights were switched on, the audience seated itself, and I was escorted to the platform, was introduced, and began to speak...In the end, through simple illustrations I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered." (Margaret Sanger: An Autobiography, P.366)

Great stuff this year. But I gotta admit, I miss the photoshopsd of Maggie Sanger at the KKK rally.

And next year I'm putting together a video.

Oh, and I voted for Carrie Tomko. Quite clever.

Ronald Reagan was endorsed by the KKK and was a racist himself. Going to have any entries with Reagan?

Anonymous,

I don't think Ronald Reagan ever spoke at a KKK Rally like Sanger. And after Sanger spoke to the KKK she received "a dozen invitations to speak to similar groups..."

Darn... and I have a song that would have been PERFECT for this. Oh, well... there's always next year.

Hi,
My name is Michael Hichborn, and I'm the media director for American Life League. I noticed that you have posted articles from us before in the past, and I was wondering if we could send out video releases to you for posting on your blog. I have recently established a regular webcast for American Life League, and I would be most honored if you would share it with your readers as they come out (every 2 weeks). If you are interested in this, please e-mail me at mhichborn@all.org.
Thanks, and God bless!
--Michael

I noticed that page 366 of Margaret Sanger's Autobiography has conveniently been removed from the book preview. It starts back on page 367.
