Today, I read this wonderful article about community acting cooperatively to send a message to the highest authorities.

Ruth Hooke contributing in the Guardian’s Comment Is Free:

A step has been taken to right the injustices being done to the remaining detainees at the Guantánamo naval base. On 4 November the representative town meeting of Amherst, Massachusetts, overwhelmingly passed article 14 of its warrant, which urges Congress to repeal the ban on releasing cleared detainees into the US and welcomes such cleared detainees into our community as soon as the ban is lifted.

To Sarah Palin, I’d state that this is true America.
