Best Viewed with IE or Opera. Sorry, Firefox works, but loses some sidebar layout,
'my profile' and other stuff... Anybody with a fix, please leave a comment. Many thanks in advance.

That said, if you must use Firefox (and I don't blame you, it's become my browser of choice, too)
...get the "IE Tab" extension. This allows you to view problem pages with the IE rendering engine. Very cool!

Optimism for Progressives in 2006

Something important happened in December that should generate some optimism about a progressive society. TIME Magazine picked Bono, Bill and Melinda Gates as their persons of the year. Now many of us may have strong emotional feelings about Microsoft, or about rock stars with big egos, but I 'm asking you to put those aside for a moment. These three people could have easily retired to a life of private luxury as many people in their position do. But they chose to spend some of their time and money traveling the world working on poverty and disease in the poorest areas of the planet. TIME magazine did not choose to honor government officials or military leaders this year. They chose three private citizens who had exercised their ability to do some significant good in the world. In effect, TIME Magazine recognized these people as the most important role models for the coming year. This is a positive thing.
