    I'm reading an excellent biography of Madison by Ralph Ketcham. Highly recommended, but it is long... ;o)

    He's my favorite founding father.

    I'm a Bobby Kennedy Democrat

       when I read his writings and the material about him and try and get an understanding of the times in which he lived (we, comfy as we are now with our ideas of protected voting and parceled power and - before the Republican domination of the judiciary - devotion to the rule of law I don't think fully appreciate how revolutionary - how counter culture - how subversive were the ideas of the founding fathers) I despair that anyone with his intellect and integrity will ever gain enough power to influence what we call politics.
