Letters to the President

As some of my readers will know, I used to contribute on a regular basis to the excellent Chicago-based publication Punk Planet. I still read it cover to cover and am so, so grateful that it exists. Anyway, thanks to shadydeals I learned today that the magazine's editor Dan Sinker has started a blog in which he plans to write a letter to President Bush every day for the fours years of his second term. It's a wonderful idea and, if the first entries are any indication, promises to be even better in practice. In these times of trial, I think we owe it to each other to support people who share our viewpoints and work their asses off for peace and freedom. Go see what Dan is doing and drop him a note of gratitude.
