Well Said... (Political, Logical)

One of the wonders of the modern age is the degree to which communication has been enhanced by technology; that can be true even when incarceration complicates matters. I’d read about this remarkably articulate condemnation of the drug war in fragmentary reports from the meeting at which it was delivered, but didn’t get its full impact until I was finally able to read it. What also impresses me is that I had been given the speaker’s name and affiliation by Dustin during a phone call from his Texas prison. To my great chagrin, I trashed both before I could Google them.

But all was not lost; I e-mailed the person who had sent him the text of the speech and soon had the URL.

It’s a pleasure to read such a forthright assessment; perhaps there’s hope for our species after all.
