The President may not make a difference but Congress sure does. We need another Ronald Reagan. Vote Republican, save your country.

I lived near Everett's brother and got to meet Dirkson three different times when I was in elementary school. He always seemed distant and pre-occupied. Well, anyway, I left the area in the '70's when it appeared the Chicago communists were finally going to overtake our pastoral communities. I visited once and saw a new public housing project out Court Street and saw Peorians shopping at Marketplace or Vogels, I don't remember exactly. There were conversations about a new prison being built out Second, Koch Or Derby? I have never returned since. I hope you have not become totally fuxated. It is interesting to note that the author of LBJ,s Great Society civil rights bill, signed by Nixon, was written by a man from a white county. Everett M. Dirkson.
