demos is a terrific pro-democracy organization, with some fine recent work tracking american inequality. i believe that registration is free, so stop on by if you have the time. i'm flying out at 6 am thursday and returning that night, so i anticipate an action-packed day. i also anticipate great fun with old friends and new, so long as the planes, trains, and automobiles are reasonably cooperative.
