Liberal is a dirty word....
Jan 25, 2013

For those of you who think liberal is a dirty word...a little story...

I went to an annual local event today, the Martin Luther King Jr. breakfast.....about 800 in attendance...it was inspiring to hear the speaker Eddie Brown, who was born to a 13 year old unwed mother in rural Florida, describe his life.

He is now a multimillionaire with his own investment company with billions of assets under management.  He is in the Wall St. Week with Lewis Ruckeyser Hall of Fame, for any of you that remember that program.  Eddie gives a lot of money away these days, including 6 Mil to John's Hopkins for research.

The room was full of a lot of good people in our town, people black and white who care about other people.  I would describe the majority of them as liberals, including Eddie (and me).

I can tell you this morning was a lot more refreshing than this hate filled forum.
