    There is a natural prejudice against fasting as part of a political struggle. It is considered a vulgar interpolation in politics by the ordinary politician, though it has always been resorted to by prisoners. My fast should not be considered a political move in any sense of the term. It is obedience to the peremptory call of conscience and duty. It comes out of felt agony.

    - Mahatma Gandhi, January 1948

    What can the "little person" do?

    I'm not going to post the whole stupid thing, read it if you want.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    They keep saying they are worried about his health. Isn't bad health and eventually death implied? It's not like you are doing a stunt where injury could result if things go wrong. He is going to starve himself to death if he doesn't get his way. (Theoretically) Dying is one of the worst things there is as far as health goes.

    Time to update J.D. Salinger's words:

    "When an attention whore meets an attention whore, comin' through the rye...."
    Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.

    The hunger strike is stupid, always is.

    However, the water up in Dimock is messed up. Everyone is pointing fingers at everyone else but the fact remains the people in that town no longer have clean water.
    Be Not Afraid.

    How is a DUer's hunger strike supposed to help fix things? I could see if George Clooney decided on a hunger strike. People would actually notice.
