When John Edwards, warts and all, spoke of the two Americas


he spoke of the place that I have been privileged to visit over the least few years. This is the place where the poor live and mostly trudge on. This is also the place where sometimes the poor organize, and get things done.

Today I went to the homes of people living in poverty in my city. (If you think it is limited to my city I got a nice bridge for sale incidentally) A place that the city threatened to condemn (with good reason mind you) after one of the residents sent the city code enforcement inspector on them.

Here is the article if anybody is interested. There are plenty of photos if again, anybody is interested in visiting that America, one that many people still believe does not exist in the United States. Yup, warts and all, but Edwards was speaking of a reality that has just gotten worst in may respects with the gap in income inequality growing.

2. Yes nadin...

warts and all, Edwards was my guy. To this day I believe it was the Clintons who exposed him. The GOP would have saved that info for the general. IMHO.

PS: I haven't forgotten my promise to support you. It just took a little longer than I expected to retire.

I appreciate all you do.
