I'm beginning to catch up after being gone. Yesterday we drove around Boston and saw some of the city after having breakfast at Zaftig's in Brookline. We hit the road around 1 pm and drove for hours and hours. I was exhausted and hit the sack as soon as I could. Today the TV people are coming to hook us up again after seven months with no television. DirecTV has been a nightmare to deal with over this. We'd never had a problem before but trying to get them to adhere to our agreements last spring has been enough to make us consider Dish Network. I still have to move a few things so they can access the attic area and then I'll be able to catch CSPAN, the debates and all the news once again.
Meanwhile it's November already and that means another edition of the new progressive online e-zine Common Sense 2. This month's edition is a bit heavy on, well, me, so I'll concentrate on articles other than the one from here on Myanmar and Iraq while you can read Part II of Chuck Brown's interview of me about the blog.
Jerry Policoff has an article about healthcare reform in Pennsylvania, Brian Moyer writes about locally grown food, Jack Lineman talks about beagles, sheep and Appleseed Hollow, Dave Lindorff asks what difference is there between Republicans and Democrats, Kathleen Welch writes about setting down roots after 60 years and publisher Chuck Brown writes part II of his feelings about activism, the Evil Party and the Stupid Party.
It's another great issue filled with interesting articles and columns (more even tha I listed here). Go check it out.
