I love how people consider the idea of universal healthcare 'draconian' as if it's a throw-back to the days of whippings and witch burnings. You can just imagine the mob of angry villagers waving pitch-forks and torches screaming, "Aaaaar! He's sick! Take him to the public clinic!" What's draconian is Georgia's complete lack of responsibility for the health of its citizens.
Yay, now all we need is Spielberg to write letters about Tibet, Myanmar and the rest of the evil crap China's involved in and we're all set for a happy and guilt-free games in '08! Seriously, awesome column - thanks for keeping us updated on the stuff that gets lost in the blizzard of meaningless news.
I agree with you in spirit, but I feel like you're saying the boomers had it right and all us young kids don't know what's up. May I remind you that it was boomers - the one's who should know better - who started this war and continue to screw it up. And I don't think most of the people at the rallies are older, as you say. I've been to all the big ones in DC and NY and at least half the crowd is always people under 30. Not to mention that many of the people working for groups live MoveOn and UPJ are young-uns. You make good points, but don't stick us with the blame - be proud of everyone who bothers to act.
I don't consider this photography. Someone who paints pictures, then cuts them up and sticks them together is not making paintings but collages or 'mixed media'. So, somone who takes a photo then adds multiple elements and maniplulations in a computer should not be called a photographer, but a digital artist or something. I have no problem with the form, just its definition.
Wow, I can't believe you typed out that whole quote. This review made me laugh, good job. I'm gonna try the Nicaraguan place. What are the proces like?
