Pitt, Spielberg and...?

After Brad Pitt contributed $100,000 to the No on 8 campaign, Steven Spielberg and his wife Kate Capshaw contributed another $100,000. But since then the liberal Hollywood, works everyday of their lives with gays and lesbians, rich and powerful haven't contributed to the cause. I hope they'll find their checkbooks soon because we need them involved.

Apparently billionaire liberal Ron Burkle has plans to host a celebrity-studded fundraiser at his home in October. It won't come a moment too soon.

Meanwhile America's favorite lesbian, Ellen DeGeneres, despite getting married herself, has not been a leading voice against Proposition 8. She has included a call to vote no on her website blog, but she could do more. The LA Times reports she's hosting a fundraiser supporting Proposition 2 which would improve conditions for farm animals (a good cause) and she recorded automated phone calls for Breast Cancer Awareness month (also good). But we need her in the No on 8 fight as well and the clock is ticking.
