JRE Goes Back to Work
Two Americas--Katrina brings them out, according to JRE.
I say this a little tongue in cheek about getting back to work--he's been working, but getting more visibility. It's a shame that a tragedy like Katrina finally woke up the media, but I think JRE is wise to use it to point out to all TV viewers that poverty is with us everywhere...and it's not pretty. Nice to see JRE's message is finally resonating as the essence of his e-mail last week has been mentioned by several people, including David Brooks of the NYT on Chris Matthews' Show last Sunday. Links of the mentions will be posted as an update in the near future.
I think Elizabeth speaks at a conference in Florida on Friday..more to come on that too.
