Taking on a Sicko

Our focus is local, but now and again something turns up that's not, that interests us and that we haven't seen elsewhere.   Mustard Street resident Lucy found this gem today, after reading a story on NPR's website about Fred Thompson.

Thomson criticized socialist icon Michael Moore for visiting Fidel Castro.   Moore then challenged Thompson to a debate on health care and criticized him for smoking Cuban cigars, thereby violating the trade embargo.

Something appeals to us about a person armed with the truth, the courage of his convictions and a "right back atcha" chutzpah.   (We're calling it chutzpah because Lucy calls Thomson a real mensch.)   All three are displayed in Thompson's delightful response to Moore.

Fred, you're our new bubbee.
