I have my too-long-to-print letter to the editor posted. My local paper won't print more than two hundred words. And then wonders why nobody bothers to read their paper. We can't even express our thoughts about the news properly there!

I love Guitar Grandma's post "I Ask Again: Are We So Stupid?" and also CowTown Pattie's "A Conservative for Obama" - great! Thank you for sharing - and I also love the last video, "I'm Voting Republican" I sent all of these to friends and family and hope they influence maybe one vote, for reason!

This is a great feature; there is so much good writing out there about politics and this is a great way to read some of the most original.

More people need to know about this little "plank" in the McCain platform:
