Love him, hate him, Ralph Nader is a presidential candidate running for an immediate end the war in Iraq. More than I can say for Barack or Hillary.
And if for nothing else than that, seat belts and air bags, the Harvard Law grad deserves a listen. So, mosey to the intersection of filth and slime, the Brass City:
Sunday, April 27, 6 pm, 193 Grand Street, Waterbury, across from City Hall.
Mr. Nader will speak on ending the war in Iraq and making the actions of government and corporations accountable to citizens.
For more info, call Pete at 203-435-1577
There is free parking on street and in public garage on Bank Street.
Why Waterbury? It looks like Ralph is trying to build an alliance with the Independent Party, which has a few city council-level elected officials in Waterbury, Winsted, East Hartford and maybe one or two more places I'm missing.
With the CT Greens solidly behind Cynthia McKinney, (although their ability to run a state-wide petition drive is questionable), Ralph, too, will need help petitioning onto the ballot.
I helped him in '04, I'm not sure what I am going to do this year. Unfortunately, I won't be able to go see him speak Sunday because I am studying for law school exams. But, hey, if you've never seen Ralph, go give him a chance. He's a fellow Nutmegger.
