MLK Day 2014: A Call To Action

How are you celebrating America's modern civil rights hero?  I am celebrating this Martin Luther King Jr. Day by joining my voice with the chorus who recognize the “War on Drugs” is a racist construct that must be concluded for the sake of our nation's conscience and our continued freedom.  Many are recognizing the decades-old war on drugs as a racist conspiracy designed to unfairly incarcerate African American men, to profit government agencies via a silent and secret tax, and to funnel blood money to corporate America.   In an article in the Huffington Post, Dylan Ratigan and Russell Simmons wrote, “A...

The Trial Attorney Creed (from Don Quixote)

“It is not the responsibility of knights errant to discover whether the afflicted, the enchained and the oppressed whom they encounter on the road are reduced to these circumstances and suffer this distress for their vices, or for their virtues: the knight's sole responsibility is to succour them as people in need, having eyes only for their sufferings, not for their misdeeds.” ― Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, Don Quixote...
