Kudo's to Kerry


Recommended Posts

In the NY Times:

OLEDO, Ohio, June 6 -Postponing a pair of million-dollar fund-raising concerts, Senator John Kerry said on Sunday that he would cease active campaigning until President Ronald Reagan is buried at week's end.

"We're going to suspend any sort of overtly political rallies," Mr. Kerry, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, told reporters after attending Mass at St. Anthony Shrine in Boston's financial district.

The fund-raisers in Los Angeles and New York City - featuring Barbra Streisand, Neil Diamond, Billy Crystal, Robin Williams, Jon Bon Jovi, John Mellencamp and James Taylor, among others - had been expected to yield several million dollars for the campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

Tickets for the events, at the 2,000-seat Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles and Radio City Music Hall in Midtown Manhattan, which holds nearly 6,000, began at $250; aides refused to say how many had been sold. Reuniting the performers and rebooking those locations will be difficult.

I don't think anybody is really going to campaign this week because of this.

It falls even more in line with Reagan's, after work we're all American's stance.

You are apart on topics and beliefs......but there are core ones that everybody should be sharing.

Respect the man by following this most basic of beliefs.
