Lost in all the rhetoric here on the Daily Kos, the New Nebraska Network, and many other places around the nets about whether or not Sen. Ben Nelson actually supports Nebraska's Democrats, let alone Nebraska's citizens, is the story of Mike Snider. Mike sat down in front of a camera, did a video for Democracy For America and the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, and told his tale about how the rise in health insurance costs was affecting his business and his family. All of us yahoos that have ranted and raved about that video, and its implications, have lost sight of the fact that Mike needs our help.
I highly recommend that each and every one of you, when you find yourselves in the Omaha area, stop by the Syzzlyn Skillet in Ralston and help Mike's business out by having a meal there. Be sure to tell him you're a Democrat and that you will do all you can to help get a health care plan passed that will help him, and others like him.
I had to pick my step-daughters up at the airport in Omaha last night and stopped by, only to find that the place is closed in the evening, but I'll be back. So go early - and go often.
