Well, I never really did come up with a topic for a DU article, but I didn't let that stop me... I just rambled on incoherently for 2000 words and then stopped. Anyway, it'll be appearing in this weekend's Democratic Underground, so check it out if you have a moment.
Actually, it looks like the thing is already available to folks in the know here, so if you're killing time late on Friday you can get a jump on the rest of the world. Enjoy.
Comments in this thread, of course.
