    As usual, Meteor Blades honed right in on the great turn of a phrase in your diary that I logged in...too late...just to point out.

    "A radical in a room full of liberals."

    Indeed. That's not a slam against people here who label themselves otherwise...just an acknowledgement that early on...and still...DailyKos provides a forum for people like MB and you, and me, and many, many others whose views are, shall we say, more progressive than the norm.

    When I came here, like many, early in the Dean campaign, looking for people who wanted to get rid of Bush, I soon became aware of certain commenters in the discussion, because they seemed so thoughtful, and like people I'd like to hang around. So I started looking for particular UserNames, like Meteor Blades...and A Gilas Girl.

    Thank you.

    Someone I respect very much once commented to me how difficult it is to be the house radical around here. But here that radical is, and for the most part, remains.
