Also, I wanted to point out this website: The local chapter of Physicians for Social Responsibility, called WNC PSR. They are doing things all the time, and they are a great bunch of folks. They hold their meetings on Tuesdays during the day, and I work, so I almost never get to their meetings. But I appreciate the work they do and the intelligent positions that they take. I wish I could join them more.
Another local website that I think is fantastic: the Greenville Anti-war Society. They will be holding a vigil on March 16th to remember the US deaths and Iraqi deaths from five years of war and occupation.
Before this invasion and occupation of Iraq started, I said it was illegal, immoral, and very very stupid. I was wrong on the last point - it is ASTOUNDINGLY STUPID. It is BLOW YOUR MIND STUPID.

I am really looking forward to hearing Dr. Wasfi speak. She spoke to the Progressive Caucus in the US House of Representatives in 2006, and did a great job. Unfortunately, she needs to be heard by the members of the US House of Representatives who are not part of the Progressive Caucus.
