newborn babies are rather wrinkled and somewhat unattractive. I remember how relieved I was that she arrived safely and was in good health, as was her mother. How happy I was for her parents [Reich’s son Adam and Adam’s wife, Teresa Sharpe] and how recently it seemed that her father was born. The second wave [of emotions] is a bunch of hopes about her future and the life she may lead. She was born into a different world in many ways.” It’s a world that worries Reich. “I am worried as hell about the world Ella is inheriting. The instability is most worrisome, as is the precariousness of the world. I’m concerned about everything from global warming to airborne diseases to terrorism, and a fragile economy which is likely to stay fragile for many years.” But Reich seems to think that Ella is up to the challenge. “Ella is a complete firecracker. Right from the go she was interested in everything and everyone. She likes nothing better than to hear music and wiggle her legs and stamp her feet and move her hands, and if there are a lot of other people standing around, so much the better. She’s incredibly curious and active. A typical day with Ella is utterly exhausting. I’d love to have a fraction of that energy. All About bob listen to Reich’s thoughtful podcast “the biggest thing to happen to me this year was the birth of my first grandchild….”  (from “Marketplace” © American Public Media, Dec 31, 2008). Reich’s Web site , his blog home page , and original 2007 vblogs . Some little ones do enjoy sitting and contemplating—not Ella. Life poses too many exciting opportunities for her.” Reich hopes Ella’s future world is not as polarized as it is today. “I’ve seen Washington become richer and more dominated by fat-cat lobbyists and influence peddlers. I worry that we are losing our democracy. Part of the problem is that we are segregated by age. The places inhabited by many older Americans are not the same places where their grandchildren reside. One hopes that they understand their connections to subsequent generations. [If they do] I think that there could be a genuine broad-based grassroots citizen’s movement to take back democracy. When things get to particular tipping points, the country has shown itself to be capable of rolling up its sleeves and getting anything accomplished.” G “Some little ones do enjoy sitting and contemplating— not Ella. Life poses too many exciting opportunities for her.” Ed. note: This article is abridged.
