Great Regulars: In "Leaves of Grass," Whitman recognized

that the essence of democracy is in fact biological. We are animal, first and foremost, and this--more than our belief in democracy--makes us equal. If the next week gets you down, open the book and the sound of this song will tune your mood.

from John Freeman: The Boston Globe: 'Leaves of Grass' by Walt Whitman
