even the most basic issues. One could easily believe the
only question is deciding how much to cut Social Security. . .
or Medicare. . . or food stamps. . . Pres. Obama is portrayed
as a big spender; yet he has increased the deficit less than
any president in 50 years. So what is missing here?
have the serious discussion we need concerning the real issues.

This year’s theme is:
“WORKING FOR YOUR RIGHTS.”
“Where we come from does not determine who we can become. What we look like places no limits on what we can achieve. We should all have the right to express ourselves, all have the right to be heard, all have the right to be what we can be: To reach for the sky and touch the stars. No matter who we are, no matter whether we are man or woman, or rich or poor:
My voice, my right. My voice counts.”
—Desmond Tutu, a key figure in the defeat of apartheid in South Africa, Nobel Prize Laureate, first black Archbishop of South Africa.
