Helen Keller: politically incorrect rebel girl

program date: 
Mon, 06/06/2011

Helen Keller is a beloved bleeding-heart symbol of personal perseverance, an "unmitigated American folk-hero" even, but what we hardly hear in school is that she persevered against capitalism and in solidarity with the radical left movements of her time. This short essay, read by Joe Clement and published at On This Deity, pays tribute to that legacy. At the end is a clip of a Joe Hill song, The Rebel Girl, sung by Hazel Dickens. That song can be found HERE, but note that the music is preceded by about a minute of narration.

An estimated 137,000 Oregonians suffer from serious mental illness and nearly 39,000 children live with serious mental health conditions. How well do we support these individuals and their families?

Oregon's public mental health system provides services to only 43 percent of adults who live with serious mental illnesses, spending only $117 per capita or 2.1 percent of total state spending. With the legislature struggling with budget cuts, how will mental health services fare?
