  •  we will write a sequel (4+ / 0-)

    on doma.funny thing is that sentence was the intended heart of diary to be written by someone and then my part on sexism underlying domestic violence would explain how this law happened. but the person writing doma section, something happened, maybe computer problems, and this morning we did not have that section. so, i did a quick dash to write up a few lines to include in this diary. Had only minutes because we wanted to post the 2 diaries together and got a grip was leaving town today. so, we may finish the diary because it is not just ohio. in fact, i have writing up that doma analysis on my to-do list. thanks for noticing.

      to the real world of activist politics.  I do undterstand that, only wish the blogosphere and so- called "netroots" did as well.  In that vein, I only wanted to highlight how much was woven into these two diaries.  The fact that all of you have struggled with the emotional, stastical, intellectual, interpersonal, community, analytic and ideological dimension that this one case has drawn out is stunning beyond language.  

      I can do nothing but commend all of you, since each of these tow highly visible recommendced diaries actually carry six or seven separate topics/diaries within them.  

      Salut to all of you.  And I look forward to the myriad discussion that they will and should foster.  I've avoided dkos discussions of gender issues, feminism and the politics of differnce because of my own expectations of the community.  I must thank all of you for bringing me back to life vis-a-vis these issues.  You've all provided me with an huge slap in the face just in the last 24 hours.
