Jesse Jackson moving to reinstate Lyndon B Johnson's War on Poverty

This piece is from the Boston Herald - though many are covering the story - with a call to "expand the LBJ dream." 
This certainly has the potential to be the beginning of some needed change.
'"Johnson launched his war on poverty from this school and this is the place to re-ignite that war," Jackson said. "We have the capacity now to end malnutrition in this country."
No one since that president has put the focus on poverty that Johnson did, Jackson said.'
