What a piece of work is man, how noble in spirit


Shakespeare's Sister has a new project. Read about it here. It's a new blog called The Big Brass Alliance, and it focuses on the now infamous "Downing Street Memo" (warning: PDF).

She writes:

The Big Brass Alliance was formed in May 2005 as a collective of progressive bloggers who support After Downing Street, a coalition of veterans' groups, peace groups, and political activist groups formed to urge that the U.S. Congress launch a formal investigation into whether President Bush has committed impeachable offenses in connection with the Iraq war. The campaign focuses on evidence that recently emerged in a British memo containing minutes of a secret July 2002 meeting with British Prime Minister Tony Blair and his top national security officials.
Any other bloggers interested in getting on board, go the Big Brass Blog and sign up. Wake the neighbors, tell the kids.
