    were progressives and Democrats since before I was on this planet -- my father-in-law passed last year, but Mom-in-law is still going strong and hoping she can budget enough to donate to good candidates next year.

      My parents were also progressives and Democrats, and I grew up with the expectation that I would carry on with stuffing envelopes, holding campaign signs, going door-to-door and otherwise get involved in ensuring election outcomes at the local, state, and Federal level.

      My father-in-law was a progressive Democrat who believed that many of our problems could be solved with reform of the tax code and adoption of a flat tax. Since he was a tax accountant/CPA, this probably would have put him out of business. It's that sort of vision and personal integrity that endeared him to me.
