Ghosts of the old south walk... or are those men in sheets?

A band of Republican Senators stands poised to take the next step in their plan to secure a stranglehold on political power by making it still easier for them to disenfranchise poor and minority voters. At a time when our nation is emptying coffers and spilling blood in the name of fostering democracy abroad we must not allow democracy to be undermined at home.
No matter how saddening the realization, it is clear that our nation has not yet moved beyond need of the protections inherent in the Voting Rights Act.
The ghost of Strom Thurmond looms large. Don’t let the rights of African Americans, poor Americans, any Americans, be sold cheap at a senatorial white sale.

Ken Lay, founder of Enron and plunderer of working people's dreams, has died before serving any jail time for the crimes of which he was convicted.

I trust karma holds something far more poetic in store for him than the big house.
