There are a few thousand people living within blocks of the White House who go to work every day...sometimes to two jobs, that might earn $168,000 in six or eight years of work, without health insurance.
Snow has defended an adminstration that seems oblivious to the reality that the majority of Americans face. The median household income in 2005 was $46,000. If more than 3.5 times that amount is not enough, how do these guys think the rest of us make it?

Both the young lady and the old lady had family at their side -- there because of love and duty.
Ritual attended each, as well. For one, there was the ritual of hospital admission procedures - where one gradually gives over all control over self to the care of (hopefully) experienced nurses and doctors. For the other, there was the ritual of remembrance and giving thanks that one who had given herself over to the care of the Great Physician was reaping a promised reward.
New life brings joy in the mo(u)rning.

If you want your dream to be, build it slow and surely.
Small beginnings, greater ends. Heartfelt work grows purely.
If you want to live life free, take your time, go slowly.
Do few things, but do them well: simple joys are holy.
Day by day, stone by stone, build your secret slowly.
Day by day, you’ll grow too; you’ll know heaven’s glory!
from Donovan's music for the film 'Brother Sun, Sister Moon'

Now watch the Right poo-poo the ad for not being "realistic."
This is the guy Matthews and Huckabee are talking about...
