Quote of the Day

Regarding the horrible attempted murder of House Rep. Gabby Giffords and the killing of six other people:

"Last week we saw a white Catholic male Republican judge murdered on his way to greet a Democratic Jewish woman member of Congress, who was his friend. Her life was initially saved by a 20-year old gay Mexican-American college student, and eventually by a Korean American combat surgeon, and this was all eulogized by an African American President." ~Mark Shields, PBS

On this day, in the year of our Lord 2011, set aside to memorialize the life of Martin Luther King, I am heartened by the thought that we may be moving closer and closer to the America that Dr. King envisioned.
