Today begins the fifth year of these pages.
Four years ago today, I started this with a call to be outraged at what was happening and to do something about it. Now, four years and just about 1600 posts later, much has changed... yet we’re still at war, the economy is chaotic, congress is flailing about, and there are all sorts of socio-political woes. Whatever your views, whether you lean left or right, or stand straight in the middle, there are still things to be outraged about.
And you can still do something about it, in whatever small way. Write to your legislators. Write to the public, through a blog of your own. Give money or time to causes you believe in. Participate in protests; go out into the streets and make yourself heard. Tell them that you’re as mad as hell, and you’re not going to take this any more.
And thanks for coming here, reading what I have to say, and adding your thoughts in the comments. It means a lot to me to know that there are quite a few folks out there reading these pages. It makes me believe that I am doing my small part.
On to year five!
