Congresswoman Lynn Woolsey, the first Member of Congress to call on the President to bring our troops home, was be in Los Angeles on Saturday February 4th 2006, for a 'very exciting but critical fundraiser against the most well-known, well-financed challenger she's ever faced". woolsey was facing a primary challenge from a termed-out Assemblyman Joe Nation, a moderate Democrat who has been critical of her stand on the war and on bringing home our troops.

Congresswoman Woolsey is a "champion of equal rights, civil liberties, protecting the environment and fighting for single payer healthcare.

New Oxford Review

From an advertisement for New Oxford Review in Democratic Left September/October 1991.

An ecumenical monthly edited by lay Catholics, we've been characterized by George Will as " splendid," by the University of Chicago's Martin E. Marty as "lively," by the Los Angeles Times as " influential," by Newsweek as "thoughtful and often cheeky," by Utne Reader as "surprisingly original," by Library Journal as "brilliant," and by Christopher Derrick, England's foremost Catholic apologist, as " by far the best Catholic magazine in the English-speaking world."
We publish Protestants, Catholics, Anglicans, Eastern Orthodox, Jews, and an occasional nonbeliever. Writers who've appeared in our pages include such diversely penetrating intellects as Robert Bellah, Christopher Lasch, Jean Bethke Elshtain, Daniel Bell, Robert Coles, Irving Howe, Walker Percy, Norman Lear, John Lukacs, J.M. Cameron, Henri Nouwen, Avery Dulles, Gordon Zahn, Will Campbell, Stanley Hauerwas, Richard Mouw, and Sheldon Vanauken . We bat around a wide variety of issues and defy easy ideological pigeonholing. We'll keep you on your toes! [5]
