    I agree with the main gist of all of your points and find #8 especially though provoking, as I tend to be a bit more of a 'lay & order' guy than most progressives are. I do want fewer people in prison, but most of all I want less crime. I love the safe feeling on the streets across out northern border. In cities like Toronto and Montreal, which in so many ways resemble our own, the odds of being injured or killed in a criminal act are so much lower, one has to ask, what the fuck are we doing wrong here?

    As I wrote in the subject line: great diary. It is also very accurate and encouraging that one of these ten important points is a doable action item right now. Let's make universal, nationalized health care a reality before my unborn little boy sees his fourth birthday. I would have never believed a decade ago that we could be so close to achieveing consensus on this.
