hear all the bombs fade away:
Marc Cooper has a piece in The Nation that I wish I wrote: a curtain-raiser on the Appeal For Redress, an active-duty military protest against the Iraq War. It's a fascinating story that traces the boundaries of dissent and responsibility.
The Appeal will be presented to Congress around the MLK holiday. I'll be in Iraq then, reporting my own story for The Nation that will now seek to pick up a bit where Cooper's excellent piece leaves off. Too bad I won't be in Washington for this presentation, because the Appeal signatories want the Democratic Congress to go outside of its intended comfort zone of scrutinizing bad management of the war and using it to club Bush. They, of course, want Congress to end the war, which I have much sympathy for and much agita about.
