We have received numerous requests to forward an appeal to people
to take part in the Internet voting for the Oscars. We agree that
Katyn needs a special recognition and we Poles or Americans of Polish
descent have a unique opportunity to bring this mass murder of Polish
officers to the attention of more people than ever, but we think that
it has to be some balance observed. Today the web site given to us
is recording Katyn as 92% winner, whereas the most prominent site
listed on the very top in the search engine research is listing Katyn
as a very last in its category with 12% votes. PoloniaSF.org therefore
appeals to all people who agree with the above reasons to vote for
Katyn at the highest ranking web page at the below address/link:
"Best Foreign-Language Film" is about half way down and as of today
[Feb.7,2008] is last with 12% votes. Please create an ID if you
do not have one and vote. Voting for all categories is not necessary.
Big Thank You from www.PoloniaSF.org for your participation.
== PLEASE FORWARD THIS APPEAL TO ANYONE YOU CAN THINK COULD HELP ==
Polish tutor needed in San Francisco
We received a following inquiry:
"I am interested in finding a Polish tutor in the San Francisco
area. I speak intermediate Polish and would like to keep up and

I would like to have lessons in San Francisco once a week.
Thanks for looking into this for me."
Anyone who can provide help for a reasonable fee please write
to email@example.com with a subject: "Polish language tutor"

by the "Political Thinker Club" [Klub Mysli Politycznej] in Krakow,
Poland. The interesting guest reveals many facts, unknown to wide
audience, i.e. that he is a member of a small political party and
he WAS NEVER member of PiS. He reveals reasons for his political
actions. [IN POLISH]:

very interesting and worth watching)
