u s representative john lewis


the courageous civil rights leader and sitting congressman john lewis will be among the recipients of the medal of freedom, america's highest civilian honor. a couple of weeks ago i posted a picture i took of ted sorensen attending teddy kennedy's wake. john lewis was there too, and i saw him shed a tear when asked by a reporter to comment on senator ted kennedy.

moth, honeysuckle



mr stewart and mr colbert go to washington

well... perhaps the less i say about the election the better (although everyone i voted for won! hooray!) anyway my friend liz sent me her photos of the restore sanity event in washington. even though sanity was not restored i still like the pictures!
the rally drew over 200,000 people by objective estimates (two hundred thousand!,) and caught dc off guard- restaurants, transportation, and accommodations, expecting a third of that, were overwhelmed. glen beck's rally to restore prejudice drew 85,000.


i did find this fairly sane chart on a conservative blog. click on image to enlarge. opinion?
