Kit Neill Meanderings

I came of age during the Viet Nam protests. I am proudly liberal. I believe in people, at least in those people who try to do the right thing. I am so grateful to Patrick J. Fitzgerald for being straightforward and clean, for being competent and choosing to fight the bad guys.

This is my first post. I don't yet know which direction I will take. I am a political animal, it is my life force. The Bush era harkens to the Nixon era to the McCarthy era, when dissention was punished. Democracy is fundamentally dissention or the right to have it, anyway. Open discussion is why we are better and if we lose that we are worse than those who never had it.

I hope Karl Rove goes down in a ball of flames that engulfs GW. They got elected on a platform of restoring trust in government and as is often the case, when ya gotta say it, you ain't got it.

Right now I trust Fitzgerald. Knowing there are people like him out there brings hope.

I'm jazzed now. Yesterday's elections mean that the voters are paying attention. Good things are bound to come from that!

It's a new world out there, thanks for showing the light.
