Back on July 2nd, Kay Dennison commented on a Café Philos blog post titled, “Chris Hedges on Lies and Truths in a Democracy”. I liked her comment, and so I entered it into a database of the post comments that I arbitrarily liked best.
The database grew to nearly 100 comments by the end of the month. Roughly about a third of all the comments left on the blog during the month made it into the database. After the month ended, I used a random number generator to pick a single comment from the database. That one comment happened to be Kay’s. Consequently, she is to receive a cheap, gaudy Café Philos T-shirt — totally free to her — as a token of my lavish thanks for taking the time to comment on this blog.
I am in concurrence with the other comments here and rant about the state of our country a lot. I also am as active as I can be, for now, in politics. I’ve already committed myself to work on the coming election. Yeah, I’ll doing data entry, sorting mail or whatever but it’s all essential work and I urge everyone to get involved and best of all, you meet a lot of interesting, committed people! I was just involved — albeit marginally — with the We Are Ohio campaign that successfully did a killer job on getting a referendum to repeal SB 7 — the union-busting bill! I hope it’s a sign to the rest of the country that we can prevail!
Many thanks, Kay!
For the sake of variety, I’m thinking that this month’s giveaway should be a coffee mug.
