...I'm okay with being REALITY-based.

Met Up

There were eight Meet-ups in Portland last night -- nearly 2,000 people altogether. The one I attended was at its second time at this particular venue, and we went from 25 people in August to over 80 people last night. The entire evening was about talking about the Dean positions and what we as individuals can do to get people interested in the political process again - and especially, interested in voting. I thought it was really productive and really challenging. People are not only angry but they are really curious about how the problems are going to be fixed. Whoever the candidate ends up being, he is going to have to answer to a lot of people who now feel they have a stake in his future and the future of this country. And I think that's a good thing.
