    doing to ameliorate at least some of the harm Agent Orange has wreaked on the long suffering Vietnamese people.

    Just yesterday during Tucson's PeaceWalk I was telling a few other walkers about the work VFP Chapter 160, which is physically located in Viet Nam has long been doing. The reaction was "I never knew that! That should be more widely known!"

    So while Tucson celebrates Veterans Day with our parade today, let me take a moment to salute a really exemplary veteran, Chuck Palazzo, and the Agent Orange Action Group who are not resting on real or imagined glories of days long gone but are making a real difference today and every day.

    Kossacks like Wayward Wind, another VFP 160 member, deserve the same shout out.

      I knew someone with that last name - who was killed in 911 - working for Canter Fitzgerald, went to work one day, never came home....

      Women are 51% of the population yet are represented in congress by barely 17%! Until our representation reflects the population, we risk sliding backwards .....
