Had a great time at +Salesforce Chicago last week. I was there for Administrator training, but also went to Wrigley Field (first time) and watched the Cubs beat the Yankees. It was great!

Cheers!
 
This piece about bringing humanity to government services is profound and important. Read it!

This is an excellent synopsis of what is wrong in the United States today: the Plutocrats are taking democracy away from the people. It's a short read- take a look!
 
The great political struggle we now face is whether the United States retains its democratic heritage or whether we move toward an oligarchic form of society where the real political power rests with a handful of billionaires, not ordinary Americans.
In his 1943 painting "Freedom of Speech," Norman Rockwell illustrated American democracy in action by depicting a man speaking up at a town meeting. A framed poster of Rockwell's painting hangs proudly on a wall in my Senate office in Burli...
