For the past few years, every September 11, I make it a point to wear my I Heart NY t-shirt. It's a tiny way of paying tribute to those who fell that day in NY, Washington and Pennsylvania, and also a way to say, as the song goes, We shall overcome.
I by no means intend to drag politics into this blog, but I thought that those of us who will vote in November may be interested in checking out a new collective blog, Women Against Sarah Palin. To think that a woman would necessarily stand up for women is foolish.
Let us steer clear of those leaders who think God's on their side. To quote one last song, Bob Dylan's God On Our Side: And you never ask questions, When God's on your side. (See full lyrics here, and hear it here, sung by the divine Joan Baez, live in 1966)
