While I don’t agree politically with Ben Stein (he’s a little conservative) I do think he is well intentioned and honorable, not to mention a damn good writer. This commentary and the one Stein wrote for mother’s day brought tears to my eyes.
Just goes to show you, we (liberals and conservatives) are not as far apart as the current political climate (or the media’s portrayal of the climate) might suggest. We all want the same things out of life. And we all rank as important the people in our lives. Not the stuff, not the laws, not the budget, nor the primaries but the people.
So this Valentine’s Day I’m taking the opportunity to show a little love for one of my favorite conservatives, Ben Stein.
