The Dream of the Cold War: Poems 1998 - 2008 by Grant CogswellPoet and activist Grant Cogswell spent the 90s and 00s fighting political battles in his hometown of Seattle. Famously, he helped initiate a grassroots campaign to build a city-wide monorail in a place that had failed to build rail transit in nearly a century of trying. His grassroots proposal won, triggering an avalanche of legal maneuvers and politicking that ultimately subverted the mandate and stopped the project. The story is captured in Stephen Gyllenhaal's soon-to-be-released film, "Grassroots."
