Return of "Winter Soldier" to D.C.

From the Iraq Veterans Against the War web site:

From March 13-16th, U.S. veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan will testify to what is really happening day in and day out, on the ground in these occupations. To provide a preview, we've created this short film. The film features three members who will be testifying at Winter Soldier and includes videos and photographs of Iraq from their deployments. This video contains graphic content. We need your support to help make Winter Soldier a success. Find out more about Winter Soldier.

Hi Mike -- I just wanted you to know that I'm out here reading your blog. Learned it existed about a week ago when my Google Alert for news on Trauner kicked it up. Nice to see someone blogging on WY politics. And, btw, I'll be caucusing for Obama in Laramie Saturday, shoulder-rubbing be damned. I switched registration from I to D so I could participate. My husband, another Obama supporter, unfortunately will be on his way back from a conference in Atlanta and unable to attend.

Anyway, just wanted you to know your voice is being heard out here in the wide open spaces.

Kainah, welcome. We were just talking about Laramie last night at the Obama precinct captain meeting. One of my colleagues said she was encountering a lot of elderly Democrats who say their poor health prevents a trip to the caucus. "I hope they're getting those young people out to vote in Laramie," she said, as if Laramie is the lone dwelling place of Dems under 30. We have a few over here, too. But Wyoming has an aging population, another great reason to vote Obama and his health care plan. Am I right?
