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."
- John F. Kennedy

Today is Madam Monk's birthday and so once again I get to wish her a happy birthday remotely. So Happy Birthday Madam! Enjoy your day and I apologize for, once again, being absent on your birthday.
