Well, this article is such a great example of why I appreciate your gift of writing and political commentary. You have somehow managed to crystalize so much of what I have read in the past, in such scattered forms and venues, into a clear, concise and streamlined article that just cuts away all the fat and puts it all into a perspective nutshell. I love the way you order your thoughts and then cut to the chase and lay it out in such a scholarly and yet easy to read form. I really enjoy these articles, and even more importantly, they let me know that there is yet hope as long as there are people in this nation that understand these issues as you do and are speaking out!!! Thanks again Szandor!
