7. I've noticed the change...sort of like the Mighty Wind went out of Sails
Edited on Mon May-01-06 07:20 PM by KoKo01
on this site. Not to say that we don't have great DU'ers who have come in to fill the void...but it seemed to me the "PASSION" went "OUT" with Alito for "Activism."

It's hard to get back what you lose...but think there are fellow "torch carriers" who have come in to fill the void for those of us who felt so bad and couldn't have the "spirit" to go on after so many "DU ALERTS" to call and petition their "absent" Congresscritters...if you lived in a Red State.
