“…an IRA worth tens of millions of dollars”

No, not that one. This was Lily Ledbetter providing last night’s DNC convention with some much needed real world perspective.

“A few pennies may not be much if you’ve a Cayman Island bank account”

    Lilly Ledbetter, you are one classy lady. Take your place among the exalted – Jeanne d’Arc, Mother Jones, Rosie the Riveter and last, but not least, our own Bernadette.
