Why? in, "Why this blog now?"

Because of this and our need for persistence and solidarity;

and because of the shame of this;

and because of our outrage over this;

and because of this reminder that, no matter what men may say, the most horrific battlefields are not sand, or turf, or oil fields, or even abstract principles, but the bodies of innocent children and their mothers;

but ultimately... because of this, the work of a 15-yr-old girl from Alabama. How can we not all be shamed by the very fact of her work? [Some of these scenes are definitely not for children or the squeamish.]

Thank you, to Steve, posting as Sandy Underpants, at The Aristocrats for that last link.
