My dear readers: some of you will have heard by now, or will soon hear, that I have decided to enter the Democratic primary for the Senate seat from New York. The main reason for my decision to enter this race is the war in Iraq. I didn't make this decision quickly nor lightly but did so after many months of discussions with colleagues and friends.
But, I won't be discussing the race here. This blog will be entirely separate from the campaign. I plan on continuing to blog here on a regular basis and will continue to discuss the issues we've been wrestling over for the past year. But, campaign-related thoughts will only be found at the campaign website, Tasini For New York.org
But, the reality is that this campaign will take up most of my waking hours (and, I guess, sleeping hours, too, as the brain keeps churning) so I've invited one person to share the load as a guest blogger. I may add additional bloggers to the mix. We'll see.
Thank you, as always, for your participation here. People pay attention to what you say: I had meant to mention that the Financial Times recently quoted one of the comments here in a profile of UAW President Ron Gettelfinger. So, keep it up.
