RIP Dave

bigdavefromqueens around these parts, and David Weintraub in real life. There was someone that wasn't afraid to climb out on a limb if it was a cause he believed in.

He thought this was important, important enough to have it as a signature:
"I shall not rest until right wing conservatives are 4th party gadflies limited to offering minor corrections on legislation once or twice a year."

They aren't 4th party, yet, but you pushed them halfway there. And they seem determined to try their best to get the rest of the way.

It's very sad for Dave's family that he passed so young. However, I can think of one devious little senator who's probably celebrating right now!

I didn't know him beyond the Blogging world, so I did not even know how old he was. But I admired his willingness to hit the street and take it to the politicians wherever they were. Sometimes with a bonus laugh for his efforts.

I do a lot less when it comes to going and covering stuff or protesting things. I do it occasionally, but not as often as I would like. (Something about dragging around a baby to these events? Anyways...) So when you all do that kind of stuff I like to think you are doing it for me, as well.
