First, I finally twisted my wife's arm - she agreed to write her "soapboxes", as she calls them, here. She's in seminary, on staff in a church, and is very passionate about her faith. I cannot count how many times I've said "You need to write that down and post it on Moral Contradictions", so hopefully soon she'll start writing here. I hope all three of you will enjoy her. :)
And the quote, from the New York Times via Senator Patrick Leahy regarding domestic spying:
"It's our government, our government!" he said, turning red in the face and waving a copy of USA Today. "It's not one party's government, it's America's government!"
So simple, yet so wise.
