Subject: POL: THIS SEEMS VERY IMPORTANT: Will Kerry Un-conceed?

Please forward to all who have specifics on vote fraud. The
send-to address below is John Kerry's brother at his law firm. Kerry will
unconcede if there is solid evidence of fraud. We need first hand sufferers
so please get this info to them!!


I am angry and getting emails and recrimination from people wondering why
KERRY just caved and is not fighting this before the final count in Ohio,
before any of the fraud was challenged, before New Mexico and Iowa even
came in.

There is widespread feeling that he did not lose the election and that it
was taken from him.

There is enough here to warrant investigation and enough to challenge the
results. It's coming from all corners.

I understand that he has until the official count certification in Ohio to
Un Concede which is several days from now.

Anyone who thinks that he should unconcede should give reasons why -
whatever they noticed, particularly in Red Republican Governed States using
electronic machines- and send them directly to Cameron KERRY, John Kerry's
brother at his law firm at the address

They should inform us if they were not allowed to vote provisionally (for
whatever reason- they lost forms, ran out of forms, etc.) I personally
witnessed a number of things as I reported in Texas with the DCCC.
(Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee)

If you know anyone in particular in Ohio who tried to vote and was turned
away at the polls please get their information and notify the campaign.

They should be notified if they experienced lines longer than four
hours -particularly elderly or infirm people (we call that torture when they
do it to political prisoners). They should be notified if people were told
as has been reported that due to too many people showing up in African
American precincts, particularly in Ohio where there were too few booths
(some only had two or three for the entire precinct) and told because of
heavy turn out they could vote on Wednesday. If the numbers of these sorts
of incidents creates a percentage margin that exceeds the margin of
victory- Un Concession has to be made to challenge the count.

If people wanted to and tried to vote and were prevented or actively
discouraged from doing so, that is a Civil Rights matter and must be dealt
with in terms of the ultimate count.

Please pass along this to your listservs so that we may make Democracy
Work in America. We are not a country where he who cheats best wins.

Another Ireland by Robert Archambeau

This review really hit it for me. I recently read Maurice Scully's _Livelihood_ and Geofrey Squires _Untitled and Other Poems_ is on deck (I love that baseball term. It is baseball, right?)

I think this is from The Nortre Dame review, but I found it via goofle (I mean google).

By Robert Archambeau

I began the first half of this article (Notre Dame Review #4) by mentioning some of the limits to the legendary hospitality Ireland has shown to its poets. If you arrive in Ireland from any point of departure outside of Eastern Europe, you will indeed find a public far more willing than the one you left behind to grant poets the recognition all but the most ascetic secretly crave. However, this hospitality has never extended to Irish poets w…
