    don't forget the "true believers" in free market policies...there was a great article recently in I believe Mother Jones (or Harper's?) that outlined the rush to allow an unfettered neocon utopia to emerge in Iraq...and how obstinate workers have helped throw a monkey wrench in those plans. People who will not leave their factory when it is sold for 100 years to a foreign power with no accountability to local residents. People who continue to work when they shut off the power, who will sit, and not move, in the face of unrestricted corporate excesses.

    They tell us that the "good news" in Iraq is not being reported, and I agree. This is one piece of good news not being reported. As Ol' Jim says, it's not really about left vs. right, but top vs. bottom.
