Happy Birthday, Nelson Mandela

Last week, I saw a notice where Karl Rove expressed amazement that the United States kept turning out people like Pat Tillman, the former NFL player who was killed in Afghanistan.

Personally, I would like to see the U. S. start turning out some people like Nelson Mandela as well. Certainly, we could use that kind of greatness of spirit and human generosity.

Mandela turns 90 today. Happy birthday!

Thinking a little bit about Mandela's remarkable efforts to reconcile white and black populations in South Africa, I won't use his birthday as an occasion to trash George Bush.
