It is a time of fear in the face of freedom, a time of an emptying country and swelling cities, a time for the widening of previous roads and the opening of new paths, yet a time when these paths are mined by knowing algorithms of the all-seeing eye. It is the time of the warrior's peace and the miser's charity, when the planting of a seed is an act of conscientious objection.

Will a binding internet vote be pulled off with accuracy […]
No, not really.
Sandy writes today from the southern tier of upstate New York to ask:
Would you provide me with more details on the non-violent rally for peace scheduled for Thursday, July 6, 2011, in Washington, DC?

As part of our sales of political sweatshop-free t-shirts (proceeds from which go to the upkeep of Irregular Times) we’ve committed to donate a buck to overseas development, and another buck to liberal political causes at home, whenever one of our shirts sells.
