Filibusters and you / alive man walking...

salon offers up a primer on the whole filibuster debate going on lately that helps explain the importance of a complicated-seeming process in easy-to-understand terms.

on an unrelated note, there's also an interesting article in the environmental news mag grist about the african american activist who shunned cars and walked everywhere, *and* didn't speak for 22 years as a form of protest/enlightenment -- he just recently started talking again and shares his experiences and what drove him to such drastic actions. also briefly addresses the chasm between white and non-white environmentalists -- good stuff.
