"Illiterate and semiliterate Americans are condemned not
only to poverty, but also to the powerlessness of
incomprehension. Knowing that they do not understand
the issues, and feeling prey to manipulative over-
simplifications, they do not trust the system of which they
are supposed to be the masters. They do not feel
themselves to be attractive participants in our republic,
and they often do not turn out to vote."

My brother proposed. He surprised his fiancée by secretly flying from Peoria, IL to Seattle. He'd asked our sister and brother-in-law to invite TH for dinner. They told her PJ had sent a surprise; close your eyes. When she opened them, there he was on bended knee.
She said, "Yes." Details are developing toward a November wedding. TBC
