commented on Child Gun Deaths Far Higher than Official Records Show
Goldy, I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate these posts. I've been blogging about this issue since the mass shooting in Oak Creek WI which is only a few miles from my home. I've been able to link to lots of information you provide, including in a post I put up today.
When it comes to availability of guns in this country I feel surrounded by unreasonable voices, and the clarity and compassion in your posts gives me hope. Thanks.

commented on A Day for Detroit
Thanks for this post. I was born in Detroit and was just there visiting my parents, and I'm so distraught and heartbroken that anyone is short-sighted enough to think that selling off the museum solves anything. The membership drive is an excellent idea and I hope it helps.

I actually did this with my own kids, showing them the ad and asking them what they thought. They were confused when I said it was controversial, and downright shocked when I told them why. Definitely gives me hope that some attitudes will eventually die out--literally.

commented on The Self-Publishing Gold Rush Is in Full Swing
I would love to get my work properly edited and published through traditional channels, but after suffering through the horrible query process and not finding an agent after years of trying I may soon go the self publishing route. I just want to write and get better and get my work out there. The business end of all of that, currently, is beyond demoralizing. I hope the changes happening due to self publishing can result in a better way.
