“90 Days, 90 Reasons” Kicks Off with Ben Gibbard and Roger Ebert

Dave Eggers and Jordan Kurland Want to Remind You to Vote for the President

With three months to Election Day, fellow Chicagoans Dave Eggers (author, founder of McSweeney’s and 826 National) and Jordan Kurland (founder of Zeitgeist Artist Management) are here to remind voters of President Barack Obama’s first term accomplishments with “90 Days, 90 Reasons.”

In an effort to rally fresh enthusiasm among the voting crowd, Eggers and Kurland have tapped a “wide range of cultural figures” to give their reasons for supporting the incumbent—no easy task with an increasingly apathetic voting demographic. Every day, “90 Days, 90 Reasons” will offer another reminder, both in short form (Twitter) and in a longer essay (90days90reasons.com).

Kicking off the independent initiative (read: unaffiliated with the official campaign) is Death Cab for Cutie’s Ben Gibbard on Obama’s acknowledgement of the right of gay couples to marry. Writes Gibbard, “I am voting for Barack Obama this fall because I want a president who recognizes that gay or straight, the rights of married couples should be equal.”

Today, reason number two comes from American film critic Roger Ebert.
