Top SIX National Priorities

If you had to come up with, say, a half dozen TOP PRIORITIES for this country to become -- as we like to say around here -- A Better Nation, here are a few (um, six, actually) to consider:

1. Provide universal health care to all citizens, including free birth control and the encouragement to use it.

2. Cut the consumption of fossil fuels per capita and overall, 24/7/365.

3. Get the lobbyists and pork out of government. Junket whores, pack your bags!

4. Foster peace and civility as well as judicial and gender equality to help reduce crime. Egalitarian is a fancy word for FAIR.

5. Raise the level of American education to the highest standards. Japan, Sweden, here we come!

6. Protect all remaining open spaces, wild lands and wet lands especially. Love the land? Don't build on it!

Over the next few weeks, I'll take up one of these topics for review.

Tomorrow, one of my pet favorites: protecting open spaces.
