You and I have our rather sharp differences, but we both know that saying we should organize this that or the other thing is cheap. And most of the comments on organizing on this list from the beginning have been from people who have never organized so much as a cub scout picnic. Every so often I give an abrupt answer to some such fatuity: Go out and organize a new group to push it in your community, and when you have some success, go to some other communities and urge them, offering your assistance. I'm increasingly pissed off at anyone who says 'we' or "the left' should do anything unless they are active in the leadership of some local activist group. I am getting tired of Bleacher Bums.
