As reader Delaware Observer correctly points out, Laura Bush worked as a school librarian and teacher for three years, so Teresa Heinz Kerry is factually incorrect in her assertion that the First Lady has never had a "real job" even as Heinz Kerry defines it. My point is that one shouldn't have to collect a paycheck to be considered a productive member of society -- wives, mothers and, yes, many volunteers have "real jobs" even though they are not paid for what they do.

Heinz Kerry has released two pages of tax returns, which is barely the tip of the iceberg in terms of revealing the extent and thrust of her financial holdings.
