    I really wanted to hear your objection. You didn't respond to my points about conflict. I think the cannibalism begins to happen when we begin to take things on a personal level, and we try to discredit each other on a personal level.

    The attacks on Beverly Harris, for example, were painful to me, because she has done so much to expose electronic voting (a suit she brought against Diebold was settled today in Calif., by the way). I still haven't heard a reasonable arguement to not support her, and I've heard accusations towards her of factionalism, but the ones raising those accusations seem to be the ones creating factions.

    Someone accused me of trolling the other day,  but hey, I expect that some of my more radical suggestions just might be rejected, and even met with hostility. It kind of goes with the territory.

    I find it an honor and privilege to post on this blog right now, and share views with so many on the state of our democracy. It seems a big part of blogging in general is our grappling with language and meaning. I wince at some of the things I have said recently, and realize I have been very emotional because of this loss we have all suffered. But I can only bounce back and strive for clarity, another day. Thanks for responding.
