Thank you also for pointing out good places to get further info, such as the Baltimore Brew. I often find the common reply to criticism of politics futile: "Well, what would you do better?"-this bypasses the obvious truth, that there's not a whole lot we can do because a lot of what the powers-that-be do is behind closed doors. It also bypasses our natural right to question, and the power and creativity that comes from questioning, from humor and satire and in maybe daring to ask people to think about alternatives. It's nice to see someone else not knowing for sure, admitting to the contradictions and then asking the necessary questions anyways.
