Quotation President Obama has not, unfortunately, done nearly as much as F.D.R. to earn the hatred of the undeserving rich. But he has done more than many progressives give him credit for, and like F.D.R., both he and progressives in general should welcome that hatred, because it's a sign that they're doing something right. - Paul Krugman, NYTimes, 1/26/14

    Sorry I'm a day late with this but I was working a fundraiser yesterday in our local area, on the Prison Industrial Complex and disseminating information.

    Not the world as it is but as it could be. Love and compassion for all,
