Do you like to bake? Or, do you just like baked goodies? has an exciting event planned for this weekend - a bake sale to demonstrate the powers of broad-based grassroots support. There are already 14 planned bake sales in Chicago alone, not to mention many others in the surrounding area. Click here and enter your zip code to find the nearest participating events. You can still volunteer to help, or just plan to stop by and support some good old grassroots politics, moveon-stlye.
