Wow. It's fascinating - in a grim, look-what-we've-come-to sort of way - to hear Romney's essential nastiness emerge in his increasingly testy exchanges with protesters.

You are part of a strong and vibrant community of thinkers and doers who believe another world is possible. Alone we are weak. Together we can make a difference. At Common Dreams, we don't look away from the world—we are not afraid—our mission is to document those doing wrong and galvanize those doing good. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. We have now launched our annual Summer Campaign. Can you pitch in today?
