As we head into this Thanksgiving week, and given the acrimony we recently went through as part of the Trinity debate, I think this column by Peggy Noonan published in the Wall Street Journal over the weekend makes interesting reading for those who are interested in the future of our city, our state and our nation. The main point: How do we want our politicians to steer the ship of state, and what type of face do we want to show to others who may be less fortunate than ourselves? While Noonan’s column obviously isn’t geared to our neighborhood, if you think about it a bit, it says a lot about city politics and politicians, who are, after all, simply people who often have bigger plans for themselves on a much grander stage.
