a friend told me over the weekend that he was talking to a veteran of both iraqi wars and said very soon that the US would become a militarized state - in other words, the draft is going to be reinstated and the prospects of '1984' rining true is going to be a distinct possibility. he told me this as we were going up the elevator to an ACLU auction. at this point in our nation's history, an organization like the ACLU is absolutely necessary to prevent further damage to personal liberties and to throw our collective weight against a nightmarish scenario in this country. so, go ahead and support progressive causes that will hopefully further some solid political good. cheers, joe d.
