    But everyone who knows anything about campaigning is adamant in saying: the election is far off, for now concentrate on raising money.  And so we shall.  We're serious about this.

    As we indicate on our website, we do seriously want to get e-mail from people about issues that may fall below our radar, and we will want volunteer help in researching and developing issue statements.  We're doing this in a way that I think you'll like.

    I manage, but except where indicated do not speak for,
    the Ron Shepston for Congress campaign in CA-42.

      but might be too controversial for now:

      Syringe Exchanges.  The government has funded nine major studies of syringe exchanges.  Every one of them showed that exchanges slow the spread of disease, and do not spread drug use.  I was co-author on one such paper, about Bushwick (a low income neighborhood in Brooklyn, NY).  Of several hundred representative 18-24 year olds, only 2 had even heard of the two syringe exchanges that existed in the neighborhood.  Yet the federal government refuses to fund them.

      Mandatory minimums.  They're stupid.  

      Education.  As part of the group working on the education panel for YearlyKos, I am very interested in this issue.  I'm particularly interested in special education and math education.

      Now up: Have you got a dollar? Fri: What are you reading? Sat: WHYGTL?
