    I became a teacher and a libtrarian and worked in schools and public libraries. So did a lot of us. We got real jobs and did what good we could where we could.  People forget that  most of us marry and raise families and ahve bills to pay. It's easy to be an all-out  activist when you're 20 and ahve no responsibilities. At 35, you have  family.  The ones You keep the ideals and channel them.  The oens who played at beign liberal but were really only anti-draft for themselves, got MBAs and went corporate.  Theera re different ways to stay idealistic--I refused to help find a spokesperson for Three Mile Island because I  couldn't stomach it. Smallt hing but a real one.

    The last time we mixed religion and politics people got burned at the stake.
