Norman Solomon, a longtime activist and media scholar, first came under FBI scrutiny at the age of 14 for picketing a segregated apartment complex near his home in Maryland. In the following years, Solomon campaigned against nuclear weapons and warfare, spending a total of 40 days in jail for nonviolent civil disobedience. He is author of a dozen books and numerous op-eds that have appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post and The Los Angeles Times, among other outlets. Currently, he has been engaged in a competitive campaign to represent Northern California's District 2 in the US House of Representatives.

Unfortunately he is not not in my redrawn district, but if he was he would have my vote in a nano-second. I was pleased to meet him in person in Ashland at Southern Oregon University. My gawd! That was in 1999! This was when he was promoting "Wizards of Media Oz" book--of which I have a signed copy.
