    I know this is the politics discussion forum, but I have to ask the boards indulgence to let me pimp my friends new cause. Here in St. Louis, in 30 days, via social media we organized the first official Welcome Home Parade for the Iraq and Afghan Vets. We are trying to spread it around the country via the power of the internet. If you are on facebook, or Google+, twitter or just want to be involved, I can tell you it was one of the most moving things I have ever participated in, barring the delivery of my children and the death of my husband. We currently have an additional 8 cities on board. Thanks.

    A worthy cause. I also hope to see a MAJOR ticker-tape parade in New York after our men and women return from Afghanistan.

    Apparently, Bloomberg was bitching about costs but we are working the donors. If you are in the area, contact our guys, they know how to start a fire.

    The Parasite Bloomberg has ruled it out.

    Yep, a possible 'negable' oops.
