Love Canal

I just returned from a week and a half of training to be a rabble-rouser left-wing conspirator organizer. Many great briefings, great people, and great times. One highlight was definitely a lecture by Lois Gibbs. Listen to a lecture from her, and you can't help but get pumped about what we do.

Another highlight was a vignette from one of the Public Interest senior staff. He said that he was in the office of Harry Reid on behalf of one of the PIRGs, and when Reid came in, he told the guy what a great thing that the PIRGs did, and said "you guys are the only thing that keeps us honest here in Washington."

Warm and fuzziness abounds.
