This week at Lappe on democracy.

Frances Moore Lappé writes about what she calls living democracy. "Very practically," she says, living democracy "means removing the power of money from decision-making and infusing the power of citizens' voices throughout public life."

In the news, Don Skinner interviews the 91-year-old widow of Pluto discover Clyde Tombaugh about the ninth planet's demotion to "dwarf planet" status. The article notes — and how cool is this? — that the Unitarian Universalist astronomer's ashes are on their way to Pluto!

Also: The UUA-UUSC Gulf Coast Relief Fund has distributed another $237,000 in grants to organizations helping to restore the hurricane-battered Gulf Coast. And Sonja Cohen keeps an eye out for Unitarian Universalists in the Media on's weekly news blog.
