"To feed the poor is an honor, not a disgrace."
Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr. (b. 1941)
It feels a bit awkward for me to toot the horn for Jesse Jackson. Well, I guess "ambivalent" is the right word…..he and I aren't what you could call simpatico in our most cherished political beliefs, I do not walk in his shoes, I fully support the ethical, social and essentially human ideals of racial equality, I abhor bigotry.
I guess I need to fall back on advice from Old Abe: "I do not like the man. I must get to know him better."
The wisdom of Abraham Lincoln
