CALL IT DEMOCRACY
At Bluestockings, 172 Allen [Stanton/Riv] 212.777.6028, on Thursday, October 19th, 7pm, there will be a screening of "Call it Democracy," directed by Matthew Kohn, which looks at the close race between Kennedy and Nixon in 1960, George Wallace's attempt to manipulate the electoral college in 1968, popular votes versus the electoral college, and electronic ballots. $5-$10 suggested contribution.
AIR QUALITY
Stand on the corner of 46th and Madison and congratulations!, you're standing by the air monitor that routinely logs the highest diesel pollutions in the U.S. But there's good news: starting this Sunday, drivers of diesel trucks will be required to start filling up their tanks with a new diesel formula that is 97% cleaner than before. More from the Times and the National Resources Defense Council.

ATLANTIC YARDS FOLLOWUP
We wrote about the arguments for and against the Atlantic Yards here. Kent Barwick, the president of the Municipal Art Society, has just circulated an email opposing the plan as it currently exists. He urges New Yorkers to visit Brooklyn Speaks and view the short slideshow to get a better understanding of the objections. Finally, read Paul Goldberger in the New Yorker, and the conclusions he comes to about Gehry and this project.
