And this is why I love him…
I rarely gush over legislators, but this exemplifies what I want in one:
“In fact, Kerry was in Germany’s Black Forest, painstakingly inspecting yellowed tree boughs and browning pine needles caused by acid rain, when he learned that former US senator Paul Tsongas was about to announce his retirement because of cancer, clearing the way for Kerry to run.”
How many legislators care that deeply and do that much hands-on work even on their issues of choice? Hopefully, more than I think.
