For what it's worth... [View all]

Maybe I'm the only one who felt this way, but somehow, I felt that the Kav nomination would pass. I guess I saw it as inevitable. I feel very calm and I'm thinking of what we can do next.

The Republicans want us to be depressed and inactive. That won't happen with me. I have a quiet determination to do whatever I can to fight them. Right now that means contributing to several folks who are running hard for the House. I don't know what form my quiet determination will take as we move forward, but I'm sure I will figure it out and carry on.

We must not lose heart!

Forward, my dear friends!
