What it's all about

Posted By on Mon, Oct 6, 2008 at 1:07 PM

I should have said this earlier. There's no sharper illustration of the importance of this presidential election than news last week that federal Judges Bill Wilson and Jim Moody are retiring.

Do you want John McCain (or, by default, the Sarah Palin-led Republican base) selecting their replacements on the Little Rock bench or Barack Obama and Joe Biden?

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families.
