“How Ralph Nader Changed America”
The Nation has published an excellent article by Mark Green on the 50th anniversary of “Unsafe at Any Speed”.
One has to get past the terrible typo in the first sentence of failure to capitalize “Rose Nader”. ” It’s 1938, and rose nader is taking her four young children for a visit back to the family’s homeland of Lebanon. They’re in line to meet an archbishop of the Eastern Orthodox Church in the city of Zahle. But when it’s 4-year-old Ralph’s turn to kiss the archbishop’s ring, he refuses. “I don’t have to kiss your ring—I’m an American!” he announces. The unruffled archbishop looks down, pats Ralph’s short black hair, and says, “A lot of ideas are going to come from this boy’s head.””
Without Rose Nader and her wonderful parenting we would not have Ralph Nader, his siblings, and so much more!
Mark Green’s article, based on decades of first hand knowledge, is otherwise entertaining, informative, and inspirational. Seehttp://www.thenation.com/article/how-ralph-nader-changed-america/
A lot to be thankful for. Lou
