Compassion is all about deep sympathy, feeling for others. Mr. Bush is long on show, short on feeling. Until you look closely, as Bob Herbert did in the 13 February 2003 New York Times, you might not see the real Mr. Bush. The real Mr. Bush dawdled at his ranch during hurricane Katrina, for two days.
Compassion is a small price to pay for peace. Where is it when our great nation preoccupies itself with intruding into the Schiavo family matter while genocide in Africa comes in wave after wave of violence and horror?
