FDL:Why It Matters
Last night was extra ordinary.
I tuned in to what is generally a late night 'chat' at firedoglake. Several of us 'regulars' talk about what a great post TRex has written and have a general shooting of the shit. Not last night.
His post is touching, poignant,compassionate. I got to the lake rather late. I read the post and was floored. This is a must read. Read the whole post and then skip (if you must) down to comment #103. Then #108. Then #116. I think you'll be hooked. It was my first experience with a weird kind of syncronicity I have not experienced on the web. Certainly I've found people in chat rooms that where friends of friends; the 'six-degrees' principle, but this was just plain serendipity.
By-the-way I post at firedoglake as "HopeSpringsATurtle", its my other 'dress'.
If you don't feel after you read this, that this occupation in Iraq should end now, you're not paying attention.
Latest polls today state that 62% of the American People are against this war/occupation. We are not the "Fringe Element". They are.
