QUOTATION: People often say that, in a democracy, decisions are made by a majority of the people. Of course, that is not true. Decisions are made by a majority of those who make themselves heard and who vote - a very different thing. - Walter H. Judd

Unsolicited Endorsements

I happened to tune into C-SPAN last night in time to catch Heinz-Kerry's introduction speech for Bill Clinton. What a great way to summarize the reasons we are voting for change. Clinton looked pale and tired, but by the mid-speech seemed energized by the mission. Great crowd!

The Oxford Union Debate in England followed, with Richard Dreyfuss delivering an impassioned plea for a return to diplomacy. If you get a chance to see that debate on C-SPAN, do not turn the dial. It's worth the price of admission to listen to the views of these intelligent people and a disciplined civil discourse, respectfully done. Crossfire could take a lesson! (Incidentally, the Kerry side won the debate 275-55!)

A note from my husband this a.m. (his study is on the other side of the house from mine, so we often communicate in this way!)included this note from one of his computer newsletters. It contains many of the links Iíve already posted in my blog over the past few weeks, but I found Fredís comments interesting and hope you will, too.

"This is from Fred Langa. I subscribe to his newsletter about computers. This is the only time I've seen anything other than about computers and a donation he makes to a child in some other country on his blog. Very interesting."

Here's a non-endorsement from Thomas L. Friedman of the N. Y. Times:


The Apparent Heir
By THOMAS L. FRIEDMAN

Ö So as we approach this critical election of 2004, my advice, dear readers, is this: Vote for the candidate who embodies the ethos of George H. W. Bush - the old guy. Vote for the man who you think would have the same gut feel for nurturing allies and restoring bipartisanship to foreign policy as him. Vote for the man you think understands the importance of facing up to our fiscal responsibilities for the sake of our children. And vote for the man who has the best instincts for balancing realism and idealism and the man who understands the necessity of using energetic U.S. diplomacy to make Israel more secure - by helping to bring it peace with its Arab neighbors, not just more tours from American Christian fundamentalists.

Yes, next Tuesday, vote for the real political heir to George H. W. Bush. I'm sure you know who that is.
