The Poverty Tour: A Call to Conscience


GOD BLESS SMILEY & WEST

Smiley & West will be on the road August 6-12, 2011 to meet with the people who are suffering and struggling during this current economy. I don’t know how they will do it in six days. I wish that they made it a summer project.
“With all the talk about deficit reduction, somebody has to tell the truth about poverty in America and the impact the outcome of this debate will have on the nation’s poor,” said Smiley. They also plan to meet with organizers, activist and social entrepreneurs who are using creative solutions to address our biggest challenges: jobs, food, energy, housing, health care and education.
They will be broadcasting while on tour. To hear the daily podcasts visit Smiley & West.
The YouTube clip is from the movie Network by Sidney Lumet. A wonderful performance by Peter Finch as the news anchor Howard Beale. There are many great performances in this film, one not to miss.
