Friends and regular readers have said they find it difficult to find my posts at The Moderate Voice. What I will try to do is post links here every day to my posts there, along with links to articles of interest I’ve read that I may not have posted about. We’ll see how it goes…

We’re not as racist as we’re afraid we are
I’m working on a follow up to it. The post was motivated by Edwards’ endorsement of Obama. In it I say something like “Obama’s done a good job on hope but not so good on our fears...” The completion of that thought is he’s doing about as much as he can. We now have to step up to it, do our part. Edwards did that with his endorsement. I’ll say it better in a post to come…

PS - My take on Huckabee: the way they say the gay marriage decision will turn out Republican voters… that is NOTHING as compared to the way this will turn out Democrats. At the NRA convention no less, and in the context of what he was saying, it is so utterly and completely disgusting and revealing of the mindset and undermining of what they are trying to do. The news this week was already filled with stories on Republicans self-destructing. Huckabee was right on cue.
