Like! Like ! Like! That's where it HAS to begin- in our small communities where we commit to being civil and to LISTENING RESPECTFULLY before we ever begin. You are right. If we can't or dont do it with the people we know and love then we can't ask or expect others to do it.


I'm ready to enter the discussion.


I agree that compromise is the key. I do not think the Catholic Bishops are interested in compromise, however.


Oh I adore you and as a madly political knitter (ain't no question which direction I lean) I'll have to grab my knitting and come hang. Can't have to many around the henhouse now can you? And I wanted to say that I admire your honest blogging. Kudos,mad applause, you name it. As far as compromise, only those in power have no interest in it, elegant or otherwise.


After finding you through Bridgett's blog, I've been reading "from the back row" for a while. I would love to be part of your group, but I'd also have a hard time avoiding politics. Politics are what drive everything else (like access to health care). Since I'm in Oregon, I couldn't join you even if I did knit.

Have you seen this by Bill Moyers about the current shouting matches? http://www.commondreams.org/view/2012/02/16-11
