Bring Us Back Closer Together

RECEIVED Tue., Jan. 4, 2005

   Thanks for "Page Two," Dec. 31. To quote a country song title from Alan Jackson who also sings "It's Okay to Be a Redneck" (no, Alan, it's not), you are "Right on the Money" when it comes to showing Americans who are the true "elitists," who are the right-wing name-callers, and the people who fall for their lies. I can only spew venom and anger for hypocrites who dupe the masses with obvious double-standard lies, but you calmly, with matter-of-fact truth, deliver your message and are a true force for change and for good. Thank you. I wish I was a force of good like you. You're a great benefit ’cause you say what needs so desperately to be said to me, and the rest of the world. It really is stating the obvious and folks don't get it. Wow. Unbelievable. Anyway, I am going to take you up on your gloriously hopeful prayer even for the hopeless like me. I'm taking it and running all the way through 2005 with your prayer for us all. I'm starting by reading Bobby's Chronicles. So, like Sly & the Family Stone at Woodstock, let's everybody sing "Higher" like trumpets, see the spiritual light shining brighter, and bring us back closer together as humanity. Back at you. Thank you. Good read.
