  1. A thousand thanks for your truly helpful article in today’s Age -Twisted Ideas… Please please keep talking non stop to the widest media possible before September 14- You articulate and help all women and men who care about others and are desperate for a civil political culture to block the influence of people abusers in our midst. You give me new hope in this global fight for women worldwide so deserving of taking over leadership.
