    i find it very encouraging that there are brilliant, good-hearted people like Dr. Kim in the world.  I hope he will tackle poverty and healthcare wisely as president of the World Bank.  I think he will.  I am very grateful to Bill Moyers for having brought us all into contact with such good people and so many important issues for so many years now.  I hope he continues to do so.
