I've gotta say that having gotten used to Huffington Post without ads I was worried about my reaction to the new site which would include ads...it turns out the site still looks quite good! The ads aren't too invasive and there are nice features that were added for improved usability. Check it out!
Also, this Cindy Sheehan thing is pretty amazing...pretty cool to read history in the making!
You never get far in life by just sitting back so I say an oldie but a goodie from my good ole cheerleading days, "Be Agressive! B-E Aggressive, say B-E A-G-G-R-E-S-S-I-V-E, Be Aggressive...Ahh-ggressive!!"
