Here is an excellent summation by Burt Hall.

To it I would add (1) that Free Press is now doing the most productive work in Congress, and ought therefore to be supported vigorously. They’re at
freepress.net.

And (2), as for election reform, I would certainly not follow MoveOn’s lead, as that organization has been largely uninvolved in this all-important fight,
and is perilously over-cautious in its program.

The 5-part series documents that Congress and the media had opportunities to (1) hold Bush accountable for a clear dereliction of duty before 9/11, (2) prevent the war in Iraq and (3) limit Bush’s incompetent administration to one term only. These two vital institutions have failed the American people. This article shows the damage done to our country and concludes with thoughts on repairing our broken democracy. If the American system had worked the way it should, things would be quite different today. These differences are illustrated in each part of the article.

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
