An Open Letter to the Students of Prairie View A & M

Dear Students,

I recently became aware of the fact that, since your marvelous county leadership decided not to put an early voting site anywhere near your almost-8,000-student historically black campus, many of you decided to just march 7.3 miles to the county courthouse to vote—and in the process gave us all a magnificent example of citizens uniting in simple, peaceful action to secure the most basic of democratic rights. I'm only sorry that such action is still necessary in the America of 2008.

Please allow me to say that you rock.

Wow. Glad they're getting some coverage. Nothing on KUT or NPR this morning, of course.
