    Does she mention the classic 'Monday Morning'?


    But we get this.  I swear, you can't make these people up:

    As I write I remember a small but perhaps meaningful historical fact. Margaret Thatcher, Ronald Reagan and Karol Woytilwa, who would become Pope John Paul II, all had mothers who took in sewing. When they were young, all three future statesmen saw their mothers stitching together things that had come apart or never been joined. All three children went on to make history by joining together things that had been ripped apart, such as the East and the West.

    Lots of women took in sewing in those days, of course. But to see your mother engaged in something so constructive, every day, bringing things together and making them new again—what children see stays in their minds. Anyway, it’s quilt-making time for the GOP.
