If by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people - their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties - someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad; if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal."

For some reason these things crossed my mind today and I have been thinking about them ever since. Do you remember when marshmallows came packaged this way? These were the days when they were molded in a corn starch lined mold and not extruded as they are today. The ones in the box were perfect little dusty gems of chewy goodness and were perfect roasted over an open fire. Just another example of "modern" production methods taking away something special.
