“There are two ideas of government. There are those who believe that, if you will only legislate to make the well-to-do prosperous, their prosperity will leak through on those below. The Democratic idea, however, has been that if you legislate to make the masses prosperous, their prosperity will find its way up through every class which rests up on them."  William Jennings Bryant

“There ought to be one day - just one - when there is open season on senators.” ~ Will Rogers

My grandmother, Carol, kept a jar of water in the refrigerator. She remembered the iceman and felt that ice water was quite the luxury. She kept a dish of chocolates on her shelf in the kitchen. I always liked going to see her, she was always kind.
            I thought that every grandmother kept chocolates and a jar of ice water. I used to think everyone had a kindly Carol, and that she had always been old, always kindly and always with chocolates.
            Tonight I remembered her when I put a jar of water in the fridge. My grandchildren are seven and four. I never had put up ice water before. But there are chocolates in a bowl, and if they want to eat them, I say Yes! You may. Have another!
