"The first truth is that the liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic state itself. That, in its essence, is fascism — ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power. ”

Can You Help the Mid-South Food Bank?
I was stunned when this CA headline came over my RSS reader today:
That startled me, to say the least, as we are a week and two days from Thanksgiving. Folks, I know times are tough, and if you can't do anything, I understand. If you CAN, however, why not run by your local grocery in the next couple of days , pick up a turkey and take it to the Food Bank at 239 South Dudley, between Union and Linden. They are open Monday-Thursday from 8 AM-4 PM, and from 8 AM-12 Noon on Fridays.
I intend to do that very thing tomorrow morning, and I hope you can, too, because they really need it.
