Most important things you can read this week

As you prepare to vote next week (unless, like me, you've already voted absentee), here's some food for thought:
  • After Pat's Birthday -- If you haven't yet read this scorching essay by Kevin Tillman, posted on truthdig.com, you should. It is past time, as the saying goes, to "speak truth to power."
  • "The Army has recently completed a new center in San Antonio specializing in amputation, [called] the Intrepid Center...." -- This passing mention came in the next-to-the-last paragraph of a lovely NYT article about service dogs being trained to assist disabled veterans of the Iraq War. Just think about that. Then think about the more than 100 U.S. service members killed this month alone, and who knows how many more severely injured and disabled for life. This is the Iraq War. No plan, no strategy, no way out. No end in sight. Don't you think it's time to shake up the deadly status quo in DC?
Challenge authority. Do good. Make a difference.

Suppose that everybody who agrees with Kevin Tillman's poignant essay: "After Pat's Birthday," made at least 100 copies and passed copies of the essay to people who they expect might vote for a Republican for either the U. S.
Senate or House of Representatives.

Could we change the outcome of the election?
