Great post.
You're really connecting all the dots here.

Thank you, David. With you reading all these old posts I feel like I have someone rummaging around in my closets, which isn't entirely unpleasant.

I'm glad you found something you liked! Have you been drinking?

I guess I'm missing your reference.

I feel bad about choking your recent comment list up and I don't usually reply just to say I agree with something but that was very interesting how you pull all that together. I notice you have a very good memory for all this political stuff. Do you have some system or some sort of notes or is it all from memory? So often it seems that just being able to recall history is all you need to make a difference. Perhaps that's another reason I quite like diving into the archives...

I think it will take me quite some time to read back through all of them. But a lot of this stuff is every bit as relevent as it was at the time. I'm really trying to not reply to it all though!

I took a peep at your site statistics and you seem oddly under-viewed considering the quality. You'll be on my shortlist of bloggers to finance if I ever win a hundred million dollars.

That reminds me of something I was going to ask but then thought better of it --- how's the Hunger Site thing going? Did being on the reminder list work?

I guess I'm missing your reference.

I was teasing you. Like you'd have to have been drinking to agree with me.

You're right about going through archives. Sometimes I do that on other blogs - just pick an archived month and read a random few posts to see what I've forgotten.

you seem oddly under-viewed

I know! What's up with that? I write and I write but nobody comes.

The Hunger Site reminder function is fantastic. I'm ashamed to say that without it, I would forget to click over most days. They're store is pretty good too. I've been buying as many gifts there as I can lately and it's been working out well. Especially the jewelry for my daughter's friends.

  • "[O]ur time, our energy, should be spent in educating, agitating, organizing our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the neighborhood, in the schools. Our objective should be to build, painstakingly, patiently but energetically, a movement that, when it reaches a certain critical mass, would shake whoever is in the White House, in Congress, into changing national policy on matters of war and social justice."


  • "True religion will not let us fall asleep in the comfort of our freedom. Love thy neighbor is not a piece of advice, it's a command. ...

    God, my friends, is with the poor and God is with us, if we are with them. This is not a burden, this is an adventure."

    Mr. President, we love America, not because of all of us have seen the beauty all the time.

    But we believed if we kept on working, if we kept on marching, if we kept on voting, if we kept on believing, we would make America beautiful for everybody.
