Having just heard about Howard Zinn's death I asked Da GOOG whether the event had been covered on ET and I found ARGeezer quoting
I think people are dazzled by Obama's rhetoric, and that people ought to begin to understand that Obama is going to be a mediocre president -- which means, in our time, a dangerous president -- unless there is some national movement to push him in a better direction. --- Howard Zinn


En un viejo país ineficiente, algo así como España entre dos guerras civiles, poseer una casa y poca hacienda y memoria ninguna. -- Gil de Biedma

"It is not necessary to have hope in order to persevere."
