Major Challenges

I have to admit to being no fan of George Bush. However, he took a couple of steps up in my esteem with his address to last week, in which he placed poverty and racism on the political agenda in the United States. It has been a sleeping issue which none have had the courage to address... the underbelly of this prosperous nation has been ruthlessly exposed in the wake of Hurricane Katrina's destruction.

From a distance, George Bush seems a naive character. His simplistic approach often leads him into dangerous territory, as with the case in Iraq. It is this simplicity which enables him to put this issue on the agenda, where all others would deem it political suicide. It is the most difficult of problems, yet the most urgent, both on the national and international agenda.

Let's hope there is the courage which leads to action.
