The liberal senator defends the "politics of conviction" in a memoir of his life and political career that describes his battle for health care reform, education, and support for children.

Blackwell North Amer
Senator Paul Wellstone's compassionate agenda leads us from the farm fields and labor halls of Minnesota to the United States Senate, where, fighting for his progressive policy, he is frequently Republican Majority Leader Trent Lott's most vocal nemesis. Along the way, he argues passionately for citizen activism, proves why all politics is personal, and explains why those with the deepest commitment to their beliefs will triumph.

had you heard that this politician,in a plane with his family, crashed, killing all aboard, on his way back home to Minnesota. At the time of the crash I felt sure the plane went down as a result of conspiracy. But I look around, throughout the King County Library System catalog, and I find no book has been written about the crash . Or, at least, none the System deems necessary to the catalog. P.S. the plane in Malaysia that vanished has still not been found. So much for spy satellites, eh? I'm sure if the 300 occupants had been from the state of Washington, we'd make sure there were answers to the disappearance. could it be that liberals are the ultimate in cynicism? do you think what noise there is being made about 'helping the homeless' would be as loud if the social service agencies were not being awarded fat contracts, as a result?
