Gee, Allan, I, for one, am neither a parlor radical nor an outdoor radical,
just someone whose brain has not been so numbed by paint-by-numbers
"conservatism" - which should, of course, be called reactionary radicalism
as it seeks to overthrow the present system and replace it with a value set
that began to be rejected in this country about 100 years ago - that he can
still recognize that this is a world of haves and havenots, and that many of
the havenots have done nothing to deserve the horrifying conditions in which
they live.

That said, the fact that you would even think to compare Salgado, who, as an
aside, I assume is a socialist, but who's prime motivating factor seems to
be his desire to wake up those in the developed world to the plight of those
less fortunate, with a supporter and propagandist for Aldoph Hitler and the
genocidal Nazi regime, says far, far more about you than it does about
either Salgado or dear Leni.

I see parlor radicals do not show the same willingness to separate art
and politics with Leni as they do with Salgado.
