Thank you, Dr. Williams. I for one can use a little comforting pity these days. And you may have some consideration from me, seeing that you have taken principled stands that cause many Americans to revile you unjustly. And thanks for your courage.
The present resident of the white House cannot--and nows he cannot--compete with the late but living presidents. He does not want to be reminded of great past leaders next to whom he becomes pale indeed.

Thank you, Mr. Williams. I live in a predominately black neighborhood where the children are not served well by the schools, but it is mostly because the children are not prepared for school, and their parents are unable to help them understand what they need to learn or how to learn. The parents are either immigrants or people educated in the same old fashion and who had parents like themselves. The parents need to be taught along with their children. Instead of the usual childcare facilities and jails that pass for schools, we need a place parents and children can go 2 or 3 hours every weekday to learn together the culture and skills they have been deprived of most of their lives and, I must say, mostly because they and we are stuck with the very old and condescending notion of the public school.
We dread to see the advances in public policy under Nanny DiBlasio. It may be we will miss the present mayor in a year or two. Of course only conservatives miss Giuliani. New Yorkers, whoever they may be, long ago surrendered their city to union/leftist politics. The city cannot drag itself out of the welfare swamp the unions and the elite of the left have created. Now we are only a few strikes and a handful of riots short of Detroit-time. That will come right after DiBlasio goes after the supposedly destructive monsters of Wall Street, and then handcuffs the police.
In a pinch any progressive/liberal administration will alter the rules to achieve the political ends of their favorite programs. This is but one of the instances of liberals engineering the failure of lawful government in order to forward their collectivist agenda. Obamacare and the many political exceptions made to it to benefit Obama's cronies, is a paradigm of the corruption that comes wholesale with self-aggrandizing narcissism.
