Word comes from my friend Anne Trudeau that Harry Kershner, radical leftist (although he calls himself a centrist in step with the majority of Americans) was arrested at yesterday's single payer health care protest at Portland Community College, Cascade Campus, where Earl Blumenauer and Howard Dean were speaking. (Or as Harry would say, "lying their asses off".)
Say what you want about Harry, who many view as a dogmatic ideologue. But never deny that Harry Kershner has the courage of his convictions:
He walks his talk.
That's more than can be said about most of us who share his views on health care, American foreign policy, and the disgusting timidity of our elected Democratic political leaders.
