I have been inspired to start my own blog to hammer away at the absurdities in contemporary America. The whole point is to force issues into the mainstream in the most blunt fashion imaginable until people get this hint; the United States of America as a national experiment is over, and we have ourselves to blame. As the people go, so goes the nation. I thought it might amuse you in the coming months. There's probably some room in there for promotion of The Brigade as well, since your novel vividly illustrates the abyss that we're hurdling toward.
