I’m not entirely sure what substantive contribution GW can make with these fireside phone calls, other than to call world attention back to a problem most people though had gone away years ago. Particularly since the President readily admits, there is little he can practically do to help. But Ian got one yesterday, and it looks like Gerry’s to get one today.
Perhaps it’s something like the rather cold pragmatic argument proffered for the retention of marriage: in a calling to witness of as many as possible so that when the vows are made, the two participant’s are more motivated to make the relationship work for richer or poorer, in sickness or in health.
A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
