Dear james m,
The intrepid Molly Ivins recently wrote that she was fed up with "every

Well, now you can. Thanks to a coalition of groups determined to make
peace a major issue in the November 2006 and 2008 races, you can join

who does not make a speedy end to the war in Iraq, and preventing any
future war of aggression, a public position in his or her campaign."
Please sign now and encourage at least 10 of your friends, relatives,
coworkers and neighbors to join. Our goal is to get millions of voters on
board so that peace becomes a powerful political demand that politicians
cannot continue to ignore.
Here's to taking a clear stand against war and kicking ass (peacefully),
