  1. agreed Gavin. i didn’t even hear about this speech till i heard it hear….it will take more than words

  2. Gavin, in a parched land a drop of water is like champagne. Mr Cowen if he can just lift our spirits is somewhat earning his large salary. We should not let ourselves be seduced by misery it builds a momentum. Feick it we have to survive thats it, lets show our balls or run away like sissys. Previous generations had to put themselves second and the future of their children and grandchildren first, maybe we now have to do the same. Good luck buddy, be well.

  3. I’m reminded of the words of Aaron Sorkin

    Lewis Rothschild: “…in the absence of genuine leadership, they’ll listen to anyone who steps up to the microphone. They want leadership. They’re so thirsty for it they’ll crawl through the desert toward a mirage, and when they discover there’s no water, they’ll drink the sand.

    President Andrew Shepherd: Lewis, we’ve had presidents who were beloved, who couldn’t find a coherent sentence with two hands and a flashlight. People don’t drink the sand because they’re thirsty. They drink the sand because they don’t know the difference. “
