As this is a presidential election year, I am advocating energy conservation, decriminalization of drugs and stiff penalties for animal cruelty and child abuse. I support adult literacy programs AND a substantial increase in the minimum wage. Under no circumstances should individuals or corporations be allowed to hide their assets in offshore tax havens. EVERYONE should cover his or her fair share or the tax burden in this country. However, I do not endorse any candidate. Here are some books I recommend : TREASURE ISLANDS by NICHOLAS SHAXSON ; CONSUMER'S UNION REPORT on LICIT and ILLICIT DRUGS by EDWARD BRECHER ; THE FIFTIES by DAVID HALBERSTAM ; THE PRIZE by DANIEL YERGIN.
