Camp Casey Sacramento

According to the sign-in sheet, 540 Cindy Supporters gathered between old City Hall and new City Hall downtown Sacramento last night. I'll have pictures up later today. The Bush Supporters? All blow and no go. Not a one. Nadda. Zilch. Zip. Move America Forward didn't show its ugly faces and the evening was one of quiet, respectful reflection on the sacrifices made by our military men and women and their families.

Man, did it feel great being around like-minded people. We were the old, the teenage, the children, the mothers and their babies, Vets for Peace, everyday Joes and Josies, coming together for a common cause -- stop. the. killing. It's so easy to feel alone in this effort, sitting in front of a computer, day after day, reading the news, usually bad news, on the papers of record, on blogs blogging about the bad news, interacting with friendly strangers through "comments," but stand shoulder-to-shoulder with 540 friends you've never met but who are as passionate as you are about the one thing that unites us -- PEACE -- and I know it sounds corny, but it's an overwhelmingly beautiful, uplifiting experience.

We are not alone.

We are legion.

And We, the People, will take our country back.

I believe.

Real glad that went well, Cap. You know, all this is inspiring me to take a stab at putting together a non-fiction proposal. PAVLOV'S DOGS OF WAR sound like a good working title to you?

Sounds like an excellent title and project!

In fact, get an outline together, a sample chapter, an overview, and I'll introduce you to my dear friend who's a lit agent looking for timely, non-fiction written by experts in their fields... YOU!
