From Rob Kall:
Progressive media need to come together this week like never before. We need to get our readers out in the streets in a legal demonstration calling for a fillibuster against Samuel Alito.

Together we are stronger, more powerful, reach more people than or any other organizations.

Let’s make it happen. I wrote an article a few days ago along these lines. I’ve emailed to a few leaders in the progressive movement. They agree. Let me know if you’ll get on board. We need to pick a day, a time and then let our readers know about it. If we pull together on this, we can show the media, show the congress that we’re serious. Please contact me if you have any ideas, if you’re willing to get on board! for this.

As usual, I’ve inluded links to new articles we’ve run.


Rob Kall,
