Here's what I love about New York--the place is full of older people--the ones with great smiles, and twinkly eyes--the ones who, like Ann, have been writing letters, making calls, and marching since the 1930s. These people have energy and passion--and they know their stuff too!

There is an elderly woman behind me who just said "I have to sit next to my new friend from England. I just met her--she came all the way over from there to help us here."

With a half hour to go, the place is more than half filled. People are passing around fliers for future events (Sept 24-26 in DC) and other actions today.

Marjorie G. is gathering signatures for a petition on electronic voting machines (It seems she wants a paper trail--imagine that! ;))--she radiates positive can-do energy.

Keep it going...

The place is rockin'! It's a full house. Randi Rhodes is here and the crowd went wild. Behind me an older woman is telling a younger woman, "You are not paranoid. Terrible things are happening. You can do a lot of good."


Magnetic Ribbons and the Yellow Cake of Faith

When we start from deluded sleep
at last, and know the dream
for dream, embraced en masse...
When bells that rang victorious
hang mute, their tarnished claims
ignored in disrepute,
and bitter sons, having been all
they could be, can't wish back innocence
or the leg below the knee...

(The brash regime trims reason
from its ranks, its black guard
in the street, protecting flanks.)

Then will we heed the schemers'
gloating leer? "There's no future
for any of you here."
So row on row, with hand
in trembling hand, it's come to this:
we dreamers better stand.
