I Stand To Be Corrected

From Ballon Juice, one of the best posts I’ve ever read on the ridiculous “strength of non-wisdom” meme that circulates through the neocon-tea-redneck (frat) party.

This is a bit belated, (Ok, VERY), but I wanted to congratulate and offer my support to my buddy Rob Kailey who is seeing to it that Left In The West continues to make a difference.

LITW has been an excellent clearinghouse for progressive Westerners and it continues to be. If you don’t know how it works, check it out. Anyone can have a diary there, and the forums are really easy to navigate and use.

Our voices are important- now more than ever.
