Friday mandate

Today marks the end of an extremely taxing week.  There is a whole lot we want to say, a whole lot we want to do to make weeks like this few and far between.  We need a little more time to stew, though, so for now, please be so kind as to do the following:

1) Go to Blogatron and sign up for the Five Buck Revolution.  You don't need to have ideas right now, but just put it on your radar, and make a very small initial commitment to turning things around.

2) Don't even think about throwing in the towel.  There's a lot that each of us can do that does not require either giving our lives up to the cause or accepting defeat.

3) Go out for a nice dinner.  Not necessarily expensive, just enjoyable.  Seriously, it will help.

4) Check back with us at the beginning of next week, we actually do have stuff to say.

5) Watch the Daily Show as much as possible.  If you don't have cable, go to a friend's house.  It will make you feel so much better.  They've gone from making fun of everyone to being on a genuine crusade.

p.s. As much as she'd rather plan the revolution while eating pizza in front of cartoons, Girl-E is singing with the disco band here tonight, if you happen to be on Cape Cod with nothing to do.  Heh.

Most importantly, 6) EDITORIALIZE.

Remember what they did to us in '94 after Clinton got elected? We can do that too. Write their papers. Call their talk shows. E-Mail their television programs. Comment on their blogs.

Be reasonable, be courteous, be civil, but be heard, and be heard loudly.
