p.s. i never mean to appear downtrodden about our country or our government...even though i somewhat often am. there are many people and organizations doing their best to make sense of what we're going through. what i'm trying to do is give you a journalistic experience outside anything you might read in your local newspaper or see on your evening news. feel free to send me links through the comments section or email me directly. i will read them and post them if i can corroborate their veracity.
