I guess blogging IS a way to get involved, without all the messiness of actually getting involved.

Where has it been all my life?

Mr. Fabulous--Correct. This cartoon actually addresses a conversation I had with Scott at Perspectives of a Nomad about a month ago. In the blogosphere, we exchange ideas and talk about all kinds of issues. However, we normally don't generate much action when it comes to dealing with the issues. Yes, blogging is one form of action and it's a first step; but unless it translates into something more, such as a March, or a letter-writing campaign, or an organized activity of some kind; I question what blogging actually accomplishes. In some ways, I believe blogging provides an outlet to express our thoughts, but at the same time it difuses our rage and prevents us from truly getting involved.

Thirty million Americans can blog til the cows come home about President Bush and how inept he is and how much we want domestic issues taken care of, but all those voices don't mean a thing until all thirty million of them pick up a phone and flood our congressional representatives or other elected officials.
