Life with the old liberals...

... is good. It also involves early-to-bed times given the average age around here, but not tonight: we are staying up relatively late (10 p.m.) because one of the family heroes, Bill Moyers, is on the local PBS station every Friday at 9 p.m.

If you don't or can't watch Bill Moyers Journal on tv, check out the website. There's always good stuff on there.

[Edited Sat., Dec. 22 in the p.m.] I've hotlinked the show's website to the words "Bill Moyers Journal" above now that I am back in the land of high-speed. (How spoiled we young 'uns are with our speedy internet connections. Though nota bene: Mother of Acts of Hope, age 89 --or as she proudly proclaims, "in my ninetieth year"-- is in the process of revolting against the status quo and getting her own high-speed connection, separate e-mail address, and personal laptop in the new year. Did I mention I come from a long line of stubborn women?)

Mine too. Listening to him recently on local community radio sounding forth in a truly prophetic vein, I wept and thought, Oh G-d, brother Bill, we *need* you. What a vice-president you would make. (At least for the 2-3 weeks before he was assassinated. I bear in mind what Michael Moore said when asked if *he* would run for president: No. I want to live.")

Season's greetings.

Greetings, Sir Francis. Sorry I never answered your question about the cat of many moons ago. Please don't take offense. A joyous Advent and Christmas to you! Glad to have you visit again. I fear you are absolutely right about what we do to our best politicians. And it may be that Moyers does more good where he is. Have a look at the interviews from last night's show. Very, very interesting and challenging.
