Omg, this is just TOO Cute!!!! I NEVER used to be a "cat" person. Although I've been a cert. Vet. Tech. for over 30yrs, the only cats I ever had were "barn" cats who lived mainly outside. Squirrels, rats, kangaroos, baby bears, white Siberian tiger pups, snakes, etc YES, (i worked at a small zoo for a few years :), but NO house cats in my homes. Until 2yrs ago, I was pulling out of a long, deep depression, triggered by losing my fiancé in an accident, losing a baby, and being diagnosed with cancer. A relative of a neighbor showed up with a 3wk old orphaned kitten. Sita turned into a rather unusual cat and all I can say is we are completly inseperable. She can be seen on my facebook pics and I WAS keeping up with her on Twitter and a blog-Twitty-Kat. Haven't been able to lately-but she still browses on my laptop, switches tv channels, radio channels, and sleeps on her pillow next to me, stealing the covers every night.. ;)

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

Hello All

Today, we are closing Thom's blog in this space and moving to a new home.

Please follow us across to - this will be the only place going forward to read Thom's blog posts and articles.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"In an age rife with media-inspired confusion and political cowardice, we yearn for a decent, caring, deeply human soul whose grasp of the problems confronting us provides a light by which we can make our way through the quagmire of lies, distortions, pandering, and hollow self-puffery that strips the American Dream of its promise. How lucky we are, then, to have access to the wit, wisdom, and willingness of Thom Hartmann, who shares with us here that very light, grown out of his own life experience."
Mike Farrell, actor, political activist, and author of Just Call Me Mike and Of Mule and Man
From Cracking the Code:
"No one communicates more thoughtfully or effectively on the radio airwaves than Thom Hartmann. He gets inside the arguments and helps people to think them through—to understand how to respond when they’re talking about public issues with coworkers, neighbors, and friends. This book explores some of the key perspectives behind his approach, teaching us not just how to find the facts, but to talk about what they mean in a way that people will hear."
Paul Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen
From Cracking the Code:
"Thom Hartmann ought to be bronzed. His new book sets off from the same high plane as the last and offers explicit tools and how-to advice that will allow you to see, hear, and feel propaganda when it's directed at you and use the same techniques to refute it. His book would make a deaf-mute a better communicator. I want him on my reading table every day, and if you try one of his books, so will you."
Peter Coyote, actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
