“A Conversation shared by a Father with his Daughter”
Address delivered by Ron Kurtz:

“To my daughter Nola… Yesterday a great person passed away after devoting her life to fighting for equality to ensure a better future for a little girl (and boy) like you.  Her commitment to uphold these ideals was so strong that rather than step down for her health and spend her last days with family and friends, she continued to be the voice of the marginalized and under-represented that find their basic rights threatened once again.  Remember her for what she stood for and use her life as an example of just how powerful a little girl (or boy) can become.  Mourn her today, honor
 her tomorrow…Our future is going to depend on the next round of RBG’s to keep injustice and hypocrisy in check!”

So pleased you give me the opportunity to comment as I was preparing a letter to the editor to send the same message saving me the trouble.

I recognize Mr Leimberg’s name as the drafter of the recent “Little Red Book” that was included with a recent newspaper edition. I had not known he had taught at Villanova University School of Law as I was a 1967 graduate. This is a repeat presentation of the recent two page ad in the same paper that Dr. John Baker so excellently subsequently rebutted.

My comment on Mr. Leimberg’s expensive investment in divisiveness: Another use of diverse and chosen at random quotes out of context to accomplish what? It does not surprise me he was a supporter of Justice Ginsberg. She, as a member of the Supreme Court, regularly contributed so much of what our society had devolved into, and particularly including the death of approaching 60 million of our babies (certainly among of the marginalized mentioned above). His Red Book, modeled on Mao’s (and ironically so) suggests Mr. Leimberg is also seeking a “Cultural Revolution”. Not in our country, Mr. L.

RIP for Justice Ginsberg, She was also a child of God…too bad she never recognized all His other children. So ironic when one reads and appreciates the address above quoted from Mr. Kurtz to the child, Nola! But unfortunately, hypocrisy reigns supreme.

As expected, freedom of the press is also dead or at least selectively applied.
