news & opinion with no titillating non-news from the major non-news channels.


I am: progressive, not a wild-eyed Progressive; liberal, but shun liberals and Liberals; conservative, but some Conservatives worry me; absolutely NOT a libertarian. I am: an idealist, but no utopian; a pragmatist, but no Machiavellian. I am a realist who dreams.


I welcome all opinions.

400,000 march in LA immigrant boycott:
   birth of a movement, or a school holiday?

from theNation.com,

The marchers, estimated by the police at 400,000 people, were almost all Mexican-American and mostly young.
When hundreds of thousands take to the streets on a day like today, we are witnessing the birth of a movement for social justice of historic proportions.
