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."

I sat on the deck tonight while a thunderstorm rolled in from the West. First the light breeze and the smell of moisture. Lightning, a long way off, then closer. Finally the rain and a full fledged rain....cold and clean. I'm impressed.
