I'm not good at this but just wanted to express my sincere appreciation of DU and all the community. [View all]

You kept me sane since 2000, when I wondered how many felt similarly. Went to DC after we invaded the country that didn't attack us, and whom we had given weapons to when it was advantageous ("Rummy&quot against Iran. The 3-400,000 that filled the streets in DC that day made me realize how strong we were when we get out and are visible. MSM was, and is falling down on the job. I exclude most of MSNBC.
In any case, I love this forum and the insightful, heartfelt and meaningful communication.
Best always and thank you.

We're a big tent, unlike the radicalized MAGATS. Don't give up. Diversity is one of our strengths, IMHO. Evolve Dammit Jun 22 #29
