Bill Moyers gets it right again!

Please take five minutes to scan this speech from Bill Moyers given at Occidental College, Los Angeles on 7 February. It is essential that each of us consider his words and take whatever action we think appropriate in terms of his call to action.

Only 15% of the people of California register and then vote. Somehow we must convince the youngsters under our tuteledge that they have an obligation to consider the political climate and to vote in each election. And each of us must model that same behaviour for these kids.
I know several of the folks who read these meanderings are teachers. We have a giant task ahead of us unless we want the US to become a corporaracy yesterday.
