I have just returned from the Phinney Beer Taste, courtesy of $30 and the Phinney Neighborhood Association. It was awesome! Phinney is the greatest neighborhood there is, honestly. The Phinney Neighborhood Association is more active and progressive than many national political organizations, and not only has great social and gastronomical events like the Summer and Winter Beer Tastes, but also Contra Dancing, classes on everything from home buying to garden composting, and political action campaigns which include official motions to impeach George W. Bush and ratify the Kyoto Protocol. Now that's a cool neighborhood.

It's also a liberal neighborhood, I know. I don't approve of slavish devotion to the platform of the Democratic party either, but I'm willing to give a little on things like gun control and affirmative action in exchange for knowing that all of my neighbors are actively fighting war crimes and torture, fiscal irresponsibility, and global corporate-commercial irresponsibility. And there's a damn cool farmers' market right next door, too, during the summer months.
