Well, ok...maybe I am a bit swarthy, but I don't relish that word for some reason...

Darn, I thought those pictures were going to be of YOU, JF.

I think Teresa is a very attractive woman. She also looks like one tough cookie. Cool.

By the way, Teresa is still a major force in at least one Heinz family foundation - a philanthropic group. One possible reason for hanging on to the name.

Oh, she's been a lot more philanthropic than that....

Ms. Heinz is a major contributor to an organization called the Tides Foundation. In fact, she is one of its top financers. The Tides Foundation, a “charity” established in 1976 by antiwar leftist activist Drummond Pike, distributes millions of dollars in grants every year to political organizations advocating far-Left causes. The Tides Foundation and its closely allied Tides Center, which was spun off from the Foundation in 1996 but run by Drummond Pike, distributed nearly $66 million in grants in 2002 alone. In all, Tides has distributed more than $300 million for the Left. These funds went to rabid antiwar demonstrators, anti-trade demonstrators, domestic Islamist organizations, pro-terrorists legal groups, environmentalists, abortion partisans, extremist homosexual activists and open borders advocates. The Tides Foundation is a major source of revenue for some of the most extreme groups on the Left.

Tides established the Iraq Peace Fund and the Peace Strategies Fund to fund the antiwar movement. These projects fueled such hysterical protest organizations as MoveOn.org. The antiwar movement often boasted that MoveOn.org and the radical website Indymedia provided them “alternate media coverage.” Indymedia, an enormous news and events bulletin board with local pages in most of the world’s major cities, provided a vital link for radical activists often with violent agendas to coordinate their protests. Indymedia receives major funding from the Tides Foundation. Tides also funds Ramsey Clark’s International Action Center, which has supported Slobodan Milosevic and North Korean strongman Kim Jong-Il. The IAC is the force behind International ANSWER, which sponsored the major antiwar (and anti-Bush) rallies before the invasion of Iraq. When ANSWER was outed as a Communist organization, United for Peace and Justice, headed by longtime Communist Party member Leslie Cagan was created as a "moderate" alternative. Tides provides the majority of their funding.

Tides is also a major source of funding for The Democratic Justice Fund, which seeks to ease restrictions on Muslim immigration to the United States, particularly from countries designated by the State Department as “terrorist nations.” Tides has also given grant money to the Council for American Islamic Relations, one of the leading anti-anti-terrorism organizations within the Wahhabi Lobby, with links to Hamas.

There's more, but that ought to keep Kathy busy for awhile...... wink

...and your point?

I take it you have no problem with a potential first lady financing Islamic terrorists and communist front organizations?

Kathy,
I played piano for several of their parties. Since they didn't own a piano they rented one for each party. Most of the people there weren't politicians (thank God). Mostly just friends and neighbors. They really were very nice people.
