in a plugged-in  world increasingly given to confusing talking about with being actively-productively engaged in, it is refreshing to have such a powerful example of how imagination/reflection divorced from doing/know-how is just daydreaming and gossip.
perhaps our circumstances are getting "real" enough that we will take up the work started by folks like Jane Addams to not just be "informed" citizens in some abstract sense but actually making a difference in the lives of other people.
thanks for raising these people up as living testaments to the possibilities of direct action.
