    Had to cancel attending this event...I live in East Rogers Park and don't have a car. Rather than spend several hours on public transportation to attend this event, I'll be attending the event at Water Tower Place downtown which is conveniently located.

    wouldn't it be better to have the meetup in the city? More central for everyone (ie not Oak Park)

    We're only a couple of hours away from the first Meetups taking place tonight! Remember to take photos/videos at your event and post them with the RethinkAfghanistan or RethinktheCost tags on Flickr/YouTube, and if you tweet about your Meetup, use #RethinkAfghanistan or #RethinktheCost hashtags. This will let other people see what's happening at your meetup and help us celebrate what you're doing!

    Hey, Chicago rethinkers! Just a friendly nudge to pick a venue...if no one picks a place, the meetup won't happen! Let me know if you need any help: derrick[at]bravenewfoundation.­org

    We've just added two new leaflets that could be very useful in your local communities. Consider using these to leaflet your hometown in support of getting our troops home! Here are the links:
