Open Hearts, Open Minds...Let's Make a Difference!
“Some of these pictures are grotesque, and I don’t want them to be part of my graduation,” said Mr. Kessler, an Obama supporter. “If these groups wanted to make a difference, they could have better used their money on homes for unwed mothers.” -- end of New York Times article on President Obama's speech at Notre Dame
I don't know that homes for unwed mothers are the best answer today (or ever were the best answer) but if everyone could put energy into positive directions, instead of shaming others and damaging property, maybe everyone could move forward.

I love it - immediately after Norm Coleman softly tells us he's stopped running negative advertising, an ad by Americans for Job Security comes on, bashing Franken. If Norm can work with others, in his words, "even" with people across the aisle (implying that it's nearly as unthinkable as working with Martians or monsters), maybe he can convince his supporters to behave. Or, maybe not.
