Taya Kyle questioned President Obama at his closed doors Townhall last night. It takes a quiet courage to calmly be the sole voice of dissent in a room full of people, many who are much more powerful than you, who support the opposite opinion. Taya Kyle continues to impress me ever since I read her memoir American Wife.
By the way, on Jan 8th, 1964, 51 years ago today in his State of the Union Address, President Johnson coined the term "War on Poverty." I thought I'd look up a related book to see where that has got us as a country, and I think this short one fits: A Nation of Takers: America's Entitlement Epidemic by Nicholas Eberstadt of the American Enterprise Institute.
Have a great Friday. Here's to the weekend!
