I am supposed to write an, "About the Name" I haven't been able to do Jim Peterson, aka JackpineRadical, justice.

Jim was an incredible man. A Vietnam war Veteran injured in duty, fully disabled. He then became a therapist for Veterans. He fought the good fight day in and day out. He posted on DU and Daily Kos for over a decade, had his own blog, was followed by and loved by everyone. His was reasonable, funny, intelligent and as helpful as anyone can be.

He and I started this site together. We were in the planning stages when he suddenly died. So we named it after him.

I'll get it done. I just seem to have a block when trying to get across how important and wonderful he was.
