Please Read This!

If you thought H.R. 3 was bad for its redefinition of rape, you haven't fathomed the half of it. Please read "H.R. 3 hides even bigger dangers than redefinition of rape" from David Waldman at Daily Kos. If you accept this bill from Congress, you accept as fact the notion that Congress has a virtually unlimited right to choose the provisions of the health insurance plan you buy. And believe me, you won't like what Congress will do with that power.

  1. Dear Stephen,

    My name is Barbara O’Brien and I am a political blogger. Just had a question about your blog and couldn’t find an email—please get back to me as soon as you can (barbaraobrien(at)


  2. Barbara, the best place to send me mail is my public address:

    or you can simply leave a message here on any comment thread. I rather hope you're the Buddhist Barbara O'Brien at Mahablog; one of my very best real-life friends is Buddhist, as are a couple of my online friends, and I have great admiration for the way they live their lives.

  3. (My previous blog had that address posted on it. I suppose I should get around to putting it up on this blog, which has become my home-in-exile.)
