    or really care what elected officials may want to do.  I'm sure they have professional expertise, personal or hired, in such matters.

    To grassroots progressives, liberals, activists and radicals I suggest being organized, being aggressive, being fun, and being there.  Don't feel constrained to maintain the establishment, you have no such obligation.  If the establishment is to be defended, let it do its own work.  Define and defend your own self-interest in sharp, quick, crystal-clear images. You have the right and power to be a blast of fresh air, a blast this country is in dire need of, but you can only liberate others if you liberate yourself first.  

    One thing that can take the weakness and dysfunction of the system and make it a strength:  you can write the story for today's lazy media.  You need to be willing to put in the time and effort and consistency, you have to be creative in coming up with fresh story lines, but if you take the time you can write most local reporters' stories for them.   Once you control the narrative, you have to really screw up not to get the ending you want.
