45. I often worry about that too...
but I think if we can get the hate radio folks to cool it (by confronting them head on, as is happening now with both AAR and the Dem politicians) even slightly and present a more rational, fact-based set of arguments, the vast majority of the people can be persuaded to think more globally and benevolently -- which in itself might prove sufficient to lift ourselves to a state of thoughtful political discourse resulting in more sensible legislation and a more civil country.

But the confrontation with the hatemongers has to be vociferous and possibly ugly, methinks :-( simply because people used to having power, however wrongfully garnered, do not give it up without an ugly fight...
