FYI: Health Care

Faith leaders including TEC have joined the cry for health care reform. What can you do?

here's a suggestion.

And here's why (hoping that our readers are of an age to recognize this reference!)

Don't really understand this cartoon. Cultural?

Hi Goran,
Back in 1943 the popular artist Norman Rockwell , whose work was generally printed on the front cover of the Saturday Evening Post painted a series called "the Four Freedoms" as an inspirational series for a country at war. A "what we're fighting for" ideal with a homespun feel.

Freedom of Speech was one of them.

Given the current thuggish protests against health care in this country, the cartoonist is contrasting the protestors to Rockwell's ideal of American values.

Our congressman's team had a great idea -- The event was held at the local minor league baseball stadium. Shouters have a bigger effect in a close space. The field allowed for the asking and answering of questions.
