I'm a very irreverent person, as far as religions, philosophies and political ideologies are concerned. This afternoon, I watched some newscasts from Arab TV stations together with some Arab/Muslim students (who kindly translated for me, arguing all the time about the "correct" translation,) and one guy (Azerbijani) asked me what politicians I respected. The best I could do was to come up with, "So and so, but, ...) As a teacher, there are times when I have to "throw my weight around", simply in order to keep things under control, but to be quite honest, I can't come up with anyone, other than perhaps Mother Theresa, whom I'd completely trust- what about the rest of you? Do you trust politicians?
