The Wisdom to Walk Through An Open Door

Abby Zimet

I'm sorry. I can't resist this. In truth, I dunno if it fits our mission to "ignite change for the common good." Perhaps not. It's more like a car crash you can't look away from. And a vital if somewhat opaque commentary on the unfathomable times, and the distances between us. Maybe Lenny Bruce could make sense of it. Or Molly Ivins, or John Prine, or Oscar Wilde. I can't. It's about how God and the Tea Party and that dreadful Sarah person will take back our country. But it raises so many questions: Back where? To what end? Where'd she get that skirt? Etc.

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
