In writing something I came across a famous old speech of Senator William Fulbright given in the Senate in 1964, a speech that became the basis of his book Old Myths and New Realities. What impressed me was the eloquence and intellectual tone. I wonder if we have anyone in the Senate today who could come up to this level of thinking. Our current political dialogue seems greatly degraded from this standard.
The link isn't working for me, Dr. Clark.
It worked before I saved the post, but somewhere in between something must have got lost.
That happens to me frequently and I don't know why.
I wasn't able to access from above URL I used this and it worked:
I haven't read it yet
I converted it for easier reading:
Thanks, Allen and Joan.
I copied it to a Word document with a larger font size so I can read it offline.
I remember Fulbright as a Republican we can respect.
Tom, I agree!
Fulbirght's speech shows how far our political discourse has descended into the muck of partisanship.
