S/SW blog philosophy -

I credit favorite writers and public opinion makers.

A lifelong Democrat, my comments on Congress, the judiciary and the presidency are regular features.

My observations and commentary are on people and events in politics that affect the USA or the rest of the world, and stand for the interests of peace, security and justice.

Little gems from some of my favorite tweeters -

Many of us love Twitter.  We have all those we follow and we have our favorites, too.  I've collected some to share:

Jane Hamsher - Exxon generates $10.3 billion in pretax income, owes no taxes & gets tax benefit of $1.1 billion, posted on 4/6/10.

John Dickerson - When a method for passing legislation sounds like the funds transfer process outlined in an email by a Nigerian banker, that's tricky, posted on 3/16/10.  Also, Palin referred to a list on her palm during an interview. Big deal. Helps explain why she said "The country needs butter, eggs, milk & o.j.," posted on 2/8/10.

Chris Hayes -
