… what better day, than today, to sign the petition urging the presidential candidates to, for cripesakes, get off the fence and endorse the treaty against cluster bombs? http://www.crossleft.org/node/6305

Last month, 111 countries around the world signed the ban against cluster bombs, but the U.S. (you guessed it) didn’t.

Here’s the thing: It’s not enough to loathe Bush policies from the tips of your hair to the tips of your toes, or even to cast your vote against the Bush policies in November. There is so much to be done in the coming days, months and years. Our voices do count. Don’t let the enormity of our problems intimidate you to silence, to some fatalistic, “Aw, what the hell” attitude. In the words of Margaret Mead:

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.

So, sign the thing, wouldya?
