Herbert nails it: America's sham democracy
Will events in Cairo trigger our own "Hundredth Monkey"?
Herbert begins today's column, "As the throngs celebrated in Cairo, I couldn’t help wondering about what is happening to democracy here in the United States. I think it’s on the ropes. We’re in serious danger of becoming a democracy in name only."
Actually, it's worse that that, as he points out. We ARE a democracy in name only.
He concludes, as I have, that we need our very own bottom-up leadership from the streets.
We need a Tahrir square. Where will it be? And when?
