NORTH FLORIDA WATER SUPPLY FOR SOUTH?

Six years ago, Florida's business leaders came up with a plan to create a state water commission that could route water from sleepy North Florida to supply the booming development in South Florida. But their plan proved so controversial that Gov. Jeb Bush scuttled it.

Now it's back.

FDR INTENDED TO ESTABLISH 2ND BILL OF RIGHTS

Bill Moyers Journal, Oct. 30, 2009, interview with James K. Galbraith. The last few minutes of the interview are copied here from the transcript. The combination of FDR's Bill of Rights and Galbraith's reaction below express very well what progressives would like to see the country become, and our conception of where we stand today. See the full transcript or watch the video at the links below; you'll find it's a few minutes well spent. -- Fred Markham
