Fascinating historical background for today's 50th anniversary of the 1963 March on Washington, from Chris Geidner at BuzzFeed: "The Idea For A March On Washington Began in December 1940." A great lesson in FDR's "make me do it" style, as well as a reminder that, yes, things can take time. We explore that theme, along with listener comments, in the context of other reform fights, including the considerably more insidery game of filibuster reform. Paul Buchheit's "Eight Ways Privatization Has Failed America." And TNR reports "Finally, a Dictator Does Something Lanny Davis Cannot Tolerate." That thing, of course, is failing to pay him.
