I'm pretty active on twitter but following Sarah is not worth my time - I think of her as a non-entity and could care less what she has to say.

Look for me on facebook or chat with me on yahoo!

Hey, I'm a Catholic liberal too!

I copied the link wrong. Try this:

Twinkles, your parents were/are a perfect example of how mutual respect and acceptance can minimize all divides. That is a love story. Liberal and Catholic in one sentence...that's funny...I'm Liberal and Orthodox.

It's wonderful that you feel the way you do now about your mom. It's hard to have that kind of perspective as a child.

Penny, yes! She and dad were like oil and water. he was very conservative, baptist. she was very liberal and Catholic. they had a great relationship though, lots of joking around, didnt take themselves seriously. my favorite memory is coming home one day and hearing screams in the backyard. he was chasing her with a water hose. haha

but ya, she was always dropping me off at my grandparents house so she could go save the whales, protest, etc. hated it then.. admire her now.

I couldn't open the link either.

Twinkles, your mom was an uber-liberal? That's where you get that independent streak. How cool!

pfffffffftttttttttttttt on them!!

I follow Joan Baez on twitter. My mother.. uber-liberal woman that she was.. once got arrested at the same place Joan Baez did, at some army induction place, while protesting. Mom was very proud of that, and remained a huge fan of hers. I love reading her posts.. makes me feel close to mom (who has passed on) in a weird way.
