And We’re Back…

January 3, 2008

Just when I was about to give up on Congress to wallow in a dark pit of cynicism, Representative Tom Lantos (CA), recently diagnosed with cancer of the esophagus, announced his retirement saying this about the United States:

“It is only in the United States that a penniless survivor of the Holocaust and a fighter in the anti-Nazi underground could have received an education, raised a family, and had the privilege of serving the last three decades of his life as a member of Congress. I will never be able to express fully my profoundly felt gratitude to this great country.’’

What a stunning statement…

Happy New Year everyone!
