[Click on the Title to read the complete post.] There is something often and incorrectly attributed (see quote attributions) to Winston Churchill: If you are not a liberal at 25, you have no heart. If you are not a conservative at 35, you have no brain. The photo of me as a young man is politically correct in its position: I was definitely a leftist at 25. Although I am well past 25, liberal/progressive remains as my political orientation, which means, I suppose, that after all these years of tilting at windmills I still have a heart; unfortunately, it also means that over the past four years it has been breaking.
