The Commons is a weblog for concerned citizens of southeast Iowa and their friends around the world. It was created to encourage grassroots networking and to share information and ideas which have either been suppressed or drowned out in the mainstream media.

"But if the cause be not good, the king himself hath a heavy reckoning to make, when all those legs and arms and heads, chopped off in battle, shall join together at the latter day and cry all 'We died at such a place;' some swearing, some crying for a surgeon, some upon their wives left poor behind them, some upon the debts they owe, some upon their children rawly left. I am afeard there are few die well that die in a battle; for how can they charitably dispose of any thing, when blood is their argument? Now, if these men do not die well, it will be a black matter for the king that led them to it; whom to disobey were against all proportion of subjection." (Henry V, Act V, Scene 4)

Robin Douglas Letter 9/27/04

The Letter from Helen Setser (9/27), asks CBS to issue an apology for running false documents. Where is our apology from President Bush? The documents may have been false but the message is not - no one knows where he was when he was supposed to be serving in the national guard. That is the question - where was he? There is an unclaimed $60,000 waiting for anyone who can say they served with him - again, I say, it is unclaimed. I don't care if Kerry deserved or didn't deserve his medals - at least we know where he was during the war. Let's stick to the facts. Now why are we in Iraq? Oh yeah, something about some things were suppose to be somewhere or something like that...kinda.
