are cooler heads prevailing?

A big shout out to NLS and RK, who, in recent posts, have had nice things to say about Linda Smyth, RK, in particular given its big disappointment last Tuesday.

RK should also be commended for raising the number one issue, the Iraq war, in connection with local politics. Via RK, I've learned of a coalition called No Iraq Escalation, which, last Thursday, announced a summer campaign to target Republican Members of Congress, including our very own Tom Davis. They hope to pressure the Members to reverse their stands in support of the Bush Administration's war "policies." You can be sure I've already alerted them to the great leverage they can exercise this year on Tom Davis, because his wife is trying to hang on to her seat.
