Here are two things I'd like you to consider, tho I know I'm speaking to the choir...lol
This is from my favorite (only) radio station, NPR and Minnesota Public Radio. It's from Saturday, 8 November 2008, by Scott Simon. I suggest you LISTEN while you read it.
The second is a news story that seems to me indicative of our new president. It's from a newspaper in the Phillipines.
Over and out.
