Since the end of February, it’s been an activist’s dream month, begun by former UN weapons inspector in Iraq, Scott Ritter’s talk sponsored by Arlington UJP about the administration’s push for war in Iran. See his books Target Iran and Waging Peace.

He spoke eloquently about the laziness of Americans and the need for more of us to be actively involved in the political process to take back this country from the corporate interests that have a sranglehold on us.

I look forward to reading his books and further writings.
