    of preparing the ground. Most political movements take some time. Even those off the table for recall now need to be subject of a grass roots campaign to point out their faults, create opposition and dissatisfaction with their positions and prepare the ground for the "spring" of an actual recall.

    Face-to-face, letters to media and all the activities of a campaign getting underway up are useful. If the experience and data in local Democratic committees can be of help and they are supportive use them.  Do not default to it being their effort or their lead. Make it clear this is a citizens' grass roots disgust instead of a political ploy.

    The only foes that threaten America are the enemies at home, and those are ignorance, superstition, and incompetence. [Elbert Hubbard]
