Those are some Smart Girls

And speaking of young people taking over the world…

This Saturday the Bus is throwing down at Teen Summit ’09, an event run by and for youth in the White Center/Delridge/Westside community of Seattle. It’s got workshops, jobs resources, and, naturally, the Bus.

But our favorite part is that the whole shebang is run by youth from the neighborhood – a group of young women who’ve named themselves the Smart Girls, and their individual nommes de organizing are, respectively, Capitol S, Capitol G, and Capitol Hill Bound. Yes, they are that badass.

It’s going down at the Southwest Boys and Girls Club, and if you live in the area, the Bus cordially requests your presence.

From White Castle to White House

We will poke you right back, Mr. Penn!

We will poke you right back, Mr. Penn!

Ah, Kal Penn…Fantastic hair, fantastic acting skills and a passion for politics. He’s the Bus crush du jour, and a certified Bus homie.

After a stint as an Obama campaign volunteer last year, Kal is now taking a leave from acting for a position in the White House Office of Public Liaison. We’re not quite sure what that office does, but we do know that he’ll have special responsibilities as a liaison with the Asian-American and arts communities.

We love people who love the arts, and we especially love it when young smart people take over the world, starting with the White House. Big up yourself, Mr. Penn, big up yourself.
