All this week, I’ll be posting video and some observations from my week in Pittsburgh as part of the Netroots Nation convention.

Here’s the first one. Kossack TexDem explains how on a Saturday afternoon in a very busy convention we came to be assembling over 300 care packages for US soldiers stationed in Iraq and Afghanistan. Some video of the actual care package assembly follows TexDem’s remarks.

If you look at the video carefully, you’ll notice some Daily Kos frontpagers like Bill in Portland Maine and Meteor Blades (two of my  favorites.)
