After listening to Arianna Huffington's speech on Thursday morning at the Take Back America conference, I realized that I, too, had fell victim to letting the Iraq War slide off of my radar. We need to keep up the pressure on our representatives, folks... this war is still immoral, unjust and inexcusable. It's time to stop our own numbness to this inanity: contact your favorite action groups like People for the American Way and MoveOn to let them know you won't tolerate the war any longer.
