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."

In The Dust Forever
loss of Neil Armstrong is a great loss for mankind but his footprints
in the dust on the moon will be there forever. Maybe some day another
man or woman will be able to put their footprint in the dust beside his
and replant the flag next to the marker left by Armstrong and Aldrin.
That is, if we are lucky.
