Public servants...what non-pols would you like to acknowledge for their contributions to our society

Not talking celebrities here, but people who have proven themselves to be outstanding public servants despite not holding office.

I would like to take a step forward and celebrate the long years of public service by Amy Goodman, author, journalist and host of "Democracy Now'. I listened to Pacifica Radio in Houston as a boy and through the decades as Ms. Goodman (and Bill Moyer) brought 'real news' to all who might listen....all the stories the main stream press refused to cover. The KKK bombed the local transmitter and offices multiple times over the years for their efforts, but for almost fifty years I have been able to find the truth there, without any corporate slant or agenda. Kudos to Ms. Goodman and all those that work with her.

Just my wasted post of the day...
