The Rockin' Joint in New York City


I hope many of you are watching this amazing event online. This is a both a rowdy and a mature crowd! Liz Holtzman was awarded--and she deserved--a standing ovation for her tales of the Nixon Impeachment and her sane cautions about the difficulty of getting Congress to act.

It will only happen, she reminded us, via the WILL OF THE PEOPLE.

And now Rep. Hinchey is on fire--clear and direct and comprehensive in his exposition of the various crimes that the Bush Administration has, provably, committed.

It is incredible to be in this hot hall and to feel the energy of the overflow crowd. The will of the people is remarkably clear here...

The air is warm, the energy high, and the people have spoken...

Never before has so much been laid out so clearly for the people to KNOW, beyond doubt, what their government has done.

People here understand what we need to do:

FIGHT LIKE HELL! (Hinchey)

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.
