Molly Ivins RIP

I just read that Molly Ivins died today. As she was one to speak truth to power, especially to the shrub, I am dedicating my virtual march tomorrow to her...

Here's a bit from her last column:

'We are the people who run this country. We are the deciders. And every single day, every single one of us needs to step outside and take some action to help stop this war. Raise hell. Think of something to make the ridiculous look ridiculous. Make our troops know we're for them and trying to get them out of there. Hit the streets to protest Bush's proposed surge. If you can, go to the peace march in Washington on January 27. We need people in the streets, banging pots and pans and demanding, "Stop it, now!"'

You can read the full column here.

Molly - I will miss you....

D.C. and MoveOn's Virtual March

It's been a log time since I wished I still lived in D.C. - but boy I wish I lived there right now.....I'd be splitting my time between the Libby trial and Congressional hearings. But I will do my politikal junkie-type behavior from Oregon for now and get to D.C. when I can...

MoveOn is organizing a massive Virtual March on Washington and aiming to send 1 million messages to Congress on Thursday, February 1st opposing escalation.

Can you contact your senators this Thursday February 1?

Here is the link for the march: MoveOn virtual march
