Every once in a while I get cynical and depressed and think Twitter, Blogging etc. serve as little more than a pointless exercise- an echo chamber for people who already agree (or not) about certain things. Sometimes it seems that no matter what one does or how loud one yells, so long as the monied […]

This is from last night. It’s from YouTube and was divided up into two parts, both of which are below. I do think that Warren will generate a lot of national buzz and that she will be able to raise money from states outside of MA. On the flip side, with Warren in the race […]

How can we as a country proclaim our unyielding support for women around the world while at the same time advocating military solutions to almost […]
Is the US Response to Mass Rapes and War Crimes in the Democratic Republic of Congo Driven by Politics?
July 2, 2011
NY Times columnist Nick Kristoff is right- the crimes taking place in the DRC are among the most under-reported in the world. It’s almost as though the DRC doesn’t exist. When was the last time you heard a story about the never-ending conflict there? Probably the last time was when Secretary Clinton bravely went to […]
