interesting how many people tailored their responses to this post specifically so that we would know exactly who they were posting about.

interesting also how many of these same people were talking about george bush (except the one right wing nutjob who posted about jimmy carter.)

i'm glad most of you used the post to find something nice to say about someone close to them whom they didn't like.

my parents gave me this wonderful book for christmas. i encourage you to explore his site.

here is a quote from it:

"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and not clothed. The world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hope of its children... This is not a way of life at all, in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging, from a cross of iron."

Dwight Eisenhower, the last great Republican.
