I entitled this piece "Shout Back" for two reasons. First, I want to give a "shout back" to The Activist Next Door for giving me a "shout out" on her blog. (I feel a hundred years old having to put these in quotes. Maybe I could lose the quotes now that our robot-in-chief gave a shout out to people in an audience for a full three minutes before mentioning the terrorist act at Fort Hood.)
Secondly I want to point all of you to her blog post about the new Gap ad. http://www.theactivistnextdoor.com/ I just saw this ad for the first time last night, and I finally get it. Sheila says everything I could and more in her spot. Read it.
Then "shout back" at the Gap by not shopping there this Christmas (or solstice, or whatever).
