" Politics is in my genetic DNA." My mother who is now deceased, participated in her first picket at age 16. She later died at 19 but not before she passed the genes of protest to me. Everything is political, so I try to work within the cycle of elections to politically change what I can.

Charles de Gaulle said it best: "I have come to the conclusion that politics is too serious a matter to be left to the politicians. "
