I love NOW, but this is not a good fund-raising letter...

Or not a good fund-raising letter envelope anyway...

On the front of the envelope it says: Do you want children getting sex education from farm animals and clowns?

And all I could think was...hell, I'd pay to see that.

It turns out that in Ohio, "Derek the Abstinence Clown" goes to middle schools, juggles, balances chairs and ladders on his nose and tells kids that "having sex before you are married is just like juggling machetes."

It doesn't say whether he juggles any machetes however.

The fund-raising letter is very rambling and while I understand the point and agree with it, I wish they'd asked me to prune and beta and de-clunkify. I could do a much better job and I wouldn't have put the farm animals and clowns on the envelope. Which means I wouldn't still be smirking about it now.
