I’ve posted a series of links to background material for Dr. Riki Ott’s Sunday firedoglake Book Salon appearance, where she will discuss her new book, Not One Drop: Betrayal and Courage in the Wake of the Exxon Valdez.

I’ve posted them at my blog, Progressive Alaska. The list is long, and could be a lot longer. But anyone unfamiliar with Dr. Ott, her newest book and her concept of a 28th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, that would mandate separation of corporation and state, and is interested in important ecological issues, should check out the blog post.

On Sunday, during the fdl book salon session, I’ll be hosting Riki from Wasilla. Riki is concluding her national book tour in Southeast Alaska, and will respond to comments from the Haines Public Library, before she catches the ferry to Juneau, and a plane home to Cordova. She has been on the road for months, so is quite eager to get back to her community and spiritual family in Cordova.

For the fdl book salon session, we only ask that one person who sucks the air out of quality time, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, be off topic.

Way off topic.

Oh, yeah - I’ll be using my real name….
