21. Thanks, I think you're right...
Plus as an ultra-liberal myself, it goes against my agitator-grain to just bail out.

As you say, I think the right is very organized. It's time, perhaps that we progressives got a little organized ourselves. I've been meaning to ask my priest for some time that if I bought a 100 issues of The Catholic Worker every quarter, if I could add them to the "literature" rack, which is currently filled with pro-life garbage and radical right publications like "The Tidings", "Our Sunday Visitor" and the "National Catholic Observer" or whatever it's called. Nery a copy of the "National Catholic Reporter" is to be found...

Organize, organize, organize.

I'm learning from statistics, that even weekly church goers like myself are more likely to be pro-choice than otherwise. I always feel like I'll be run out on a rail if I speak up, but I bet a lot of other people feel the same way.
