I don't think we should punish citizens for not voting; I think we should just count the abstentions. That way, politicians would have to campaign positively.

You can afford to count abstentions if you use proportional-representation districts, like this.

Near the end of today's extraordinary interview with Mr. Bolden (seriously, I was rivited to my phone), he gave out an email address for an autographed copy of his book The Echo From Dealy Plaza. It passed so quickly I couldn't write it down (the subway'll do that; i already looked like a weirdo gasping at what he was saying). I tried accessing his website, but it sets up an email to "author"@website etc. The email Mr. Bolden mentioned was something like "a.bolden" something @ something.

It truly was an honor to hear Mr. Bolden tell his incredible experiences. To have such a brave and important person in autograph a copy of those experiences would mean a lot to me. Thanks for your help.

I had to go back through the video to find it, but we've gotten several calls asking. His email is a.bolden@sbcglobal.net

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

Hello All

Thom's blog in this space and moving to a new home.

Please follow us across to hartmannreport.com - 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 Screwed:
"The powers that be are running roughshod over the powers that OUGHT to be. Hartmann tells us what went wrong — and what you and I can do to help set American right again."
Jim Hightower, National Radio Commentator, Writer, Public Speaker, and author of the bestselling Thieves in High Places
From Screwed:
"Once again, Thom Hartmann hits the bull’s eye with a much needed exposé of the so-called ‘free market.’ Anyone concerned about the future of our nation needs to read Screwed now."
Michael Toms, Founding President, New Dimensions World Broadcasting Network and author of A Time For Choices: Deep Dialogues for Deep Democracy
