Love your emphasizing the positive, even about the Koch Brothers. I will put them on my prayer list too. (BTW, it drives the rightists nuts at rallies when I TELL them I will pray for them. But sometimes when the spirit moves me I do and then I do. I pray that they and more people will wake up.) But as for Cory Booker, there is more to him then a progressive pretty face who made one error. He is BAD on education. Please speak to Glen Ford of the Black Agenda Report. Glen spoke at All Souls Church here in NYC recently re the corporate assault on public education and Cory figured in the talk. Joe Friendly (love that name!) taped it and it is at his JoeFriendly channel on YouTube -- perhaps someone in your team can review the tape: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdPACwRgw04&feature=plcp Glen is pretty radical but very articulate and could be a good guest.
Another reason to be positive: People are living longer so maybe we will break the 80-year cycle.
Healing hugs to Louise!
