News Worthy of Postage

I was getting my daily dose of the New York Times today and found two op-ed articles that should be of interest to every American. This election is a very sensitive issue for me. My parents are voting McCain, as are (so far as I know), all of my grandparents. I wonder if any of them know of McCain's plan for revamping health care? I know I didn't. This article boggled my mind. I really had no idea...READ IT!!! And please don't make some lame excuse that the NY Times is a liberal news machine. This is way too important.

McCain's Radical Agenda by BOB HERBERT

I also thought the following article was quite insightful. I agreed with it completely. I'm still trying to understand why others don't. By the way, this columnist is awesome...

Making America Stupid

On a non-political yet still serious note, Richard Wright, member of Pink Floyd, died yesterday of cancer. This guy wrote "Us and Them" and "The Great Gig in the Sky," arguably two of PF's best songs. RIP Wright. Your stuff will forever live on in my itunes library.

Thank you so much for posting those articles! I should send you the link to a really interesting report by John Stossel (sp?) about health care reform . . . a lot to think about. And that is yet one more reason why I think McCain is completely creepy.
