Report from Seattle

I just got off the phone with Bill Moyer of the Backbone Campaign in Seattle. They, like the organizers today in New York, Oakland, Los Angeles, and Northampton, had to turn people away because the space was filled beyond capacity.

Congressman Jim McDermott, I'm told, gave a tremendous speech, as did spokespeople from Military Families Speak Out, and as I'm sure Bill did himself.

They also performed a humurous reenactment of the Downing Street Meeting.

Then they organized groups to write letters to the media, to Congress, and to the Governor of Washington State.

When I told Bill about the events eleswhere today, he said "It's the beginning of the end for the Bush Administration."

Do I really date to begin to hope!??

We better riot congress on the issue of the downing street meetings, and blowing the cover of the CIA in order to fix the facts for war right now.

Now is the time...Can't wait, do it all right now, pound it over and over and over again!! It isn't going away, but they are getting more and more desperate by saying they will Nuke Iran.
