  •  "Fighting Chance" should only be read aloud. (6+ / 0-)

    much of it can migrate to other, similar wobbly playing fields and rigged outcomes and performance enhancing drugs and etc and etc and etc ...

    but the truth and power -- the truth she wrote and the power you feel when reading her aloud -- reveal a new fight, a new kind of fight and any tilt is in OUR favor, and growing, and glowing. read it aloud in your best, deep, tired-as-a-dog voice: it will never leave you then.

    share the reading, if you can.

    to bell the cat there must be resolve, many plans and unity of vision. this time? -- cat could be chipped ala wildlife ranger's rifle during "tag" season. (can we ?)

      I don't see the connection between this comment and the diary.

      Sorry if I missed it, but I don't get this...

        strongest supporters are just the marks in the con game
        "it's just a ride" - Mr. Hicks

        (boxing is a ... ? bullfighting is ... ? war is ... ?)

        Republicans would rather kill off their strongest supporters than have them think that maybe that fellow in the White House—and his Democratic Party—aren't so bad after all.
        And this is why Republicans are so dead-set against helping even their own people:
        they'll know rather than think Democrats aren't so bad. and at that point they won't go back to "not knowing," and that it feels good doing good when doing good is the winning strategy.

        the goal is two-fold: win, and do good.

        same with Sen. Warren, Paul Wellstone, etc etc --
        so by reading her book aloud, it becomes more than just a book about one specific thing, at one specific time, but about a lot.

        sorry if it seems more clear to me than a brief explanation can convey.
