Open Thread


by Mary

We are in the (twilight)zone where the Democratic Convention is over and the Bush campaign still has several weeks before their convention. (So, wasn't the Democratic convention a great intro to the 2 Johns for the general American public?)

But as Bush's own Andew Card said in August 2002: "From a marketing point of view, you don't introduce new products in August." Yes, indeedy. August, when the American public is treated with the most inane and fluffy news reports even while there is a momentus election looming.

What can we at the Left Coaster do in August to provide content that educates, entertains and informs our readers about the importance of this upcoming election?

Well, how about we find one more writer to add to our crew who clarifies and delinates the choices in this upcoming election and why it is so important to remove this administration from power as soon as we can. If you have been following our comments threads, I think you will agree that larre's comments are worthy of being front page posts. Fortunately with the dog days of August looming, we at the Left Coaster are pleased to announce that larre has agreed to join us as a Left Coaster writer.

So while the national press goes into their normal braindead hiatus, we at the Left Coaster promise to provide you with a reason to visit us every day and, even more, to provide you with useful, timely and informative content that can help you convince your family, friends and neighbors why a vote for Kerry is a vote for a better future. Welcome, larre.

Now it's your thread.....
