8. K&R. The nostalgia in this piece is very comforting.

Lately it seems like its one blow after another. Sometimes you have to just stand and let the opponent exhaust themselves before you launch an offensive. I've been thinking about Ali of late, and greats like Barbara Jordan and Pat Schroeder in all this turmoil. You recount a beautiful instance when Conyers rose to the leadership demands of the occasion. Unfortunately, I believe he will not serve another term in Congress. Like many humans, he is flawed. People are forgiving of mistakes. This time, I think it's probably one too many. That does not negate any of the good he has done or all the positive contributions he has made.

That's what we're missing now. We're missing strong leadership. The other side has it in Putin. We're still looking. I have watched several RFK videos the past couple of days and I wish we had such a unifying and compelling voice in our national discourse right now.

Blessings to you, H20 Man and thanks for your perspective.
