And now, from the lighter side....

From time to time Abolish the Death Penalty has turned our readers attention to awards garnered by local activists associated with our state affiliates -- like when Jane Bohman, head of our Illinois affiliate, was honored by Chicago Business Magazine, or when Celeste Fitzgerald, head of our New Jersey affiliate, received similar recognition as a mover and shaker.

Today we bring you news in a similar vein, although perhaps not quite as deep.

It turns out that Isaac Kimes, newly hired organizer for the Tennessee Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty, has been written up by the Nashville Scene, Nashville's alternative weekly. It seems that the Nashville Scene each year publishes a feature called the Lust List and Isaac made the cut.

Writes TCASK's blog:

TCASK's very own Isaac Kimes has made the Scene's annual Lust List. While we always knew he was a phenomenal field organizer and a passionate supporter of the movement, we had yet to fully recognize his "lusty" side. Thank goodness the Nashville Scene took notice and pointed out all of Isaac's shining characteristics. We are certainly lucky to have him here at TCASK--and in Nashville--not only because of his outgoing personality, enthusiasm, passion and talent but also, as we now know, because of his award winning good looks. Described as "attractive, altruistic and unattached" by the Scene, this "good-looking do-gooder" is an integral part of both the Nashville community and the TCASK family--let's take a moment and celebrate Isaac, Nashville's latest "cute and clever catch."

You can read the magazine's article here. We're pleased to see that the feature isn't all about looks -- you obviously have to have some talent and brains, too, to get on this list.

So, congrats, Isaac. Now get back to work!
