    to others, and I don't think they quite absorb it (then again, no way to tell who may have started lurking...).

    I stumbled onto DK in late '05, my depression over the reelection of Dubya worsening and further aggravated by the death of my mom. After marinating in Tennessee rightnuttery for >25 years, this place was a godsend. POLITICALLY SANE, COMPASSIONATE PEOPLE GROUNDED IN FACTS.

    Gradually I became aware of the our developing wider-world-within, all of our communities, filled with people who have nursed me through the loss of loved ones, human and non-; shared my bitter disillusionment with my country; kicked my butt for being complacent; and inspired me to be more creative and empathetic.

    KJG, I've followed your diaries with great interest since your early Mouse days, and I consider you one of our most powerful voices.
