The powerful tornado that ripped through Oklahoma and devastated towns saddened America earier this week. Our sympathetic thoughts and prayers are with Oklahoma as she rebuilds from yet another large disaster within one generation.  All of the increasingly bizarre weather across the world of late points to Global Warming, but the politicians in America do practically nothing about it.  What will it take for them to act?

UPDATE -- MEMORIAL DAY, May 27, 2013: our "Memorial" poem, in honor of our deceased servicemen and servicewomen in battle in the late 20th and early 21st centuries was published on May 24, 2009 on our Senator blog.

2ND UPDATE - June 6, 2013: since the time of this post, another series of tornadoes hit Oklahoma recently, but the Sooner State seemed better prepared in the latest tornado maelstrom, but the damage was still very bad.

If possible, please, consider contributing to the Party of Commons, which has scores of members, by sending a check or money order ($10 recommended) to Mark Greene's Party of Commons or $10 to the U.S. Representative Campaign that will be on the ballot in 2014 (to Mark Greene for Congress); for either address, write to P.O. Box 612, Bellevue, WA 98009. Thank you!

Mark is probably the only politician in Washington that had the temerity to keep the 2004 election shenanigans in the news as late as 2013 and to call out names. Help us solve the mystery of "The Other Curious Election of 2004" (WA 9th Congressional District U.S. Rep. primary) by contacting real journalists and asking them to look into it. Please, ask these journalists to use "Freedom of Information" requests to get to the bottom of this case. Elections are too important for shams to be ignored and for accountability to be neglected.
