"Why We Fight" just arrived today from my Blockbuster queue - looking forward to watching it with some friends tonight! Thanks again for recommending it awhile back.
Sorry I've been absent of late - was out of town for a few weeks and then my youngest has been sick for a few weeks. Just catching up now. Hope you are doing well.

I hope you find it as interesting as I did... especially since Jarecki is only 25, it makes me happy to see such political filmmaking activism from a younger generation.

I hope your child is feeling better.

I am doing good... working, living, struggling... this is life and I like it (considering the alternative).

:) I'm going to be in Oregon/Washington for two weeks in late July... do you want to meet and say hello?

I LOVED the movie! Watched all the additional footage on the dvd as well. I agree, how wonderful that a younger person is out there trying to make a difference. I hadn't known about the removal of 'congressional' from the phrase 'military/industrial complex' - truly fascinating and sadly so prescient. I'm spreading the word on the movie. Also saw the movie Children of Men right before - really enjoyed that one as well - and so it was some interesting juxtapositioning and overlap.

It would be a pleasure to meet you. What are you doing up here in Washington? If you need a place to use as a base, could crash in our guest room. If interested, send me an email and we can work out the details. Having said all that, we've been tentatively talking about a trip around that time as well, but haven't firmed anything up as of yet.
