Kim, also known as A Progressive Girl, founded A World of Progress while living on a mountaintop in Tennessee. Her aim then as now is publish voices that need to be heard — progressive voices seeking solutions, political and otherwise, that benefit all and not the privileged few. Kim now lives in Asheville, North Carolina, with her partner and two dogs.

Not that Congress will heed his warnings.
