The whole Bush regime has been about money. Money for big oil, for the defense contractors, for cronies, tax cuts for the wealthy, everybody's getting rich at the working tax payer's expense.

az, well I went straight to your 2nd bill of rights! what a visionary iconoclast FDR was, how unusual for the time and society he grew up in. not surprisingly, he was considered a traitor to his class by those of similar privileged birth. much like JFK, RFK, he looked beyond his patrician cronies & actually saw & listened to the poorer folk of the land. hmmm, my favorite on the 2nd bill of rights is #1 "job with a living wage". Everything else would follow from that, i think. thanks for that reminder of a president who worked for all the people! D.K.

I discovered Molly back when I was living in Austin, and was tickled to death to find out she actually lived just across the freeway from us in Travis Heights. I'll see if I can google up the story she tells about the pig that got loose in Travis Heights one afternoon.

My pipe-dream Sunday brunch always was sitting down with her and Ann Richards over fried green t'maters and just let the conversation roll. Oh, well. Maybe someday.

I like linking Miss Molly with the 2nd Bill of Rights...well done! She's always been a firm believer in "We're All In This Together".

az: Thanks for the link to the FDR's second bill of rights. I loved it. In fact, with a little 'googling' it is possible to show where the nation has gone backwards (in many cases--way, WAY backwards) in each of those rights these past 60-70 years.

As for Molly, she's one of 37 on my Top Ten Women trying to save America.
