    Here is a quote from an Alternet posting (www.alternet.org) in response to an article on the filibuster in The Nation (by John Nichols).  I thought it was a perfect example of the kind of desperation felt by so many Americans these days.  The last few lines are particularly poignant.  

    "I've been following the Alito hearings somewhat and have concerns about his background. You brought up issues in your article. I hope they are accurate and truthfull.

    I support Kerry and all others to fillibuster [sic]. Not sure if it will stop the promotion of Alito, but hopefully will instill some confidence in the Dems. Speaking up and out is not easy but once done, it gets easier, in my experience. The Dems have been sitting on the bench too long now.... i guess they all are worried about losing their seat, but bench sitting only goes so far, in the end, doesn't mean much. Besides, arent' the Dems and the others, wealthy enough to not be in power anyway....

    I'm a regular working guy, and want my voice to be heard and understood (not hearded)[sic].

    Please, Kerry, whomever, Dean, I have my eye and hopes on you..... Gore? ...

    Anyone? "

    May all beings be free from fear.
