Thanks very much for writing "The Sucker Bait Called Hope." I just finished reading it this Thanksgiving Day morning.
Several times I wanted to stop reading. I wanted to go find an article on Obama's new cabinet appointments or go pour another cup of coffee and put more wood in the stove, anything but read more of the painful truth. And, of course, what you wrote is the truth.
I'm glad I finished reading the essay. Yes, yes. Vote for the spirit. It's an affirmation I needed right now.
