    Oliver, because it was so chocked full of things to reply to.  I wanted to choose what resounded most to me.

    And it's this:

    We need to stay on the ball when it comes to voter registration and voter suppression, and it's sites like this one that expose the virulent shit that happened in OH and PA (and will happen again). We need to stay on the ball when it comes to rhetorical garbage like "the Fiscal Cliff" and "The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun... is a good guy with a gun!" Kos did that, and does that. And we need to stay on the ball on getting better Dems elected in regular and special elections. Kos did that, and does that, and I hope will keep doing that.
    IOW, this site is not all about the rec list, or the pie fights or the comments.  It's also about a POV, and a CONSTANT flow of info, day in, day out, with A LOT of linky love to be had.

    I have seen other sites suggested today as a refuge from the rough and tumble here.  I have heard other sites suggested before.  I remember when the HP went through its great purge and many went to this site or that site.

    But what I found is that those sites, good and great as they may be, do not supply the breadth and depth of coverage, hour to hour during the day that this site does.
    They do not generate the amount of discussion that this site does, albeit sometimes in a bad way.  But also, sometimes in a good way.

    All in all, there's lots of places to visit on the internet, new homes to be found. But I still haven't found that place that's better for a progressive than this place, despite its GLARING imperfections.  

    So I pick and choose, and tip toe through the minefields. At least for now.
