Check out this risky gambit:
"SAN FRANCISCO — Some same-sex marriage supporters are urging people to "call in gay" Wednesday to show how much the country relies on gays and lesbians, but others question whether it's wise to encourage skipping work given the nation's economic distress.
Organizers of "Day Without a Gay" — scheduled to coincide with International Human Rights Day and modeled after similar work stoppages by Latino immigrants — also are encouraging people to perform volunteer work and refrain from spending money."
Layoff announcements are everywhere. Because of that, it's probably a good time to keep your head down and do your job. I think same sex rights are a fine cause and what went down in California this election was unjust but if I had a 9-to-5 job right now and the boss parked a steamroller on top of me, I probably wouldn't stage a protest.
