Hooray for Molly.

Thank you for "Enough of the D.C. Dems" (by Molly Ivins, March issue). Once again you have coaxed me back from the brink. Saving the country just might be fun if greater numbers find louder voices. South Dakota's abortion bah almost finished me. If it were not for you, Howard Zinn, your editor Matthew Rothschild, and the whole Progressive team, I could be dragging a rope and looking for a rafter.

Yes, there are millions of us who agree with you, Molly. So let's pick a candidate and encourage him (or her) to run. The obvious choice, as Molly suggests, is Russell Feingold, a flat-out hero as far as I'm concerned. So why not inundate him with letters promising money and time if he runs for President? Let's spread the word and let him know that we're behind him. It cannot begin too soon,

About thirty-five years ago, my best friend and I were discussing whether it would be a white woman or a black man who first broke the white man's grip on the White House. We laughed ruefully that even though we would both vote for Shirley Chisholm, a black woman in the White House just wasn't likely to happen first.

But after reading Molly Ivins's recent column on the D.C. Dems, I'd like to say: Let's go for it! Think of the current crop of incredible African American women in the House. They are the conscience of the nation. I say, Maxine Waters for President!

After reading Molly Ivins's column this month while sitting all alone at my kitchen table, I f--Matthew Rothschild elt like jumping up and shouting, yea! She has it exactly right.

I'm retired, and I have the time now to read more, but after a while the state of affairs gets me down. I feel so helpless. I sure can't donate much money. I compare it to standing at the street curb and watching my house burn down and wondering, "Where is the !@#$%& fire department?"
