|How 'Bout we Calm Down about Michigan? (Updated)
Part of Muskegon Critic's diary today was probably aimed at me. That's OK. But there are some serious points to be made here. Please follow below the fold:

|An Open Letter to Barack Obama (Rick Warren)

|Serve the Greater Good, Chumps!
There's plenty of John Edwards crap here today, but yet maybe not enough. I am completely unconcerned with the "newsworthiness" of this sad episode, even though I suspect that the "news" about it ...
|I'm a hypocrite, and it's OK!
I admit it. I wrote a diary a couple days ago called, A Note to Barack Obama (with feeling). In it, I posted the text ...

|Paranoia, or the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy
Why won't Hillary quit? Why do we care so much whether she does? Is it over? Is there still time? Is there a way she can win? Does she want Barack Obama to die? Do we want her to die? Well .
|My Letter to Tom Harkin

|Bittersville (a New Hope)
I live in Bittersville. I'll probably die here, too. So will most of the other people here now. Bittersville's a town that used to have 1100 meatpacking jobs that paid $27.00 per hour - in 1972. ...
