I just posted on my blog a response to the right-wing claim that dissent endangers our soldiers. Oh yeah? If that's so, how dare Republicans send out "our soldiers" in such a precarious way that their lives depend on an end to domestic free speech?
I went to a "Meetup" for Howard Dean tonight. Many of the people I met had come because they heard about the meeting at the most recent big Boston demonstration for peace. I like Dean's sincerity, his clear positions, and the fact that he represents "the Democratic wing of the Democratic party." And I am, right now, really feeling full of hope.
