It is always great to hear from you. I loved your role on MSNBC. You are always so rational and pleasant, something that is missing from the general debate today. Good luck; we hope to see more of you on the air.

What bothered me about Ronald Reagan's statement that he wanted to get big government off the backs of the people, my reaction was that I wanted government to get big business off the backs of the people...but Reagan seemed to think big business *was* the people. Now Reagan's position has evolved into an attitude that "the free market can fix everything" on the part of the far right, even when we see how the results hurt the people.
