Though we had a wonderful time with my father-in-law George McGovern two weekends ago - - talking politics and baseball at dinner, and seeing him give a short talk before a performance in Sioux Falls of Aaron Copeland's "Lincoln Portrait" Symphony, with George's taped narration - - things are changing in a worrisome way and he is in hospice, as various media are reporting.
Help us keep our fingers crossed for this good man.
Nice 2005 interview with this photo, here.
I get very angry at the Dick Cheneys and the [Donald] Rumsfelds and the George Bushes in this world who take us into these completely unnecessary and self-defeating wars. I felt that way about Vietnam; I feel that way about Iraq.
