Choice Quote 2005/06/23.

Saw this recently in a magazine:
I love America more than any other country in the world, and, exactly for this reason, I insist on the right to criticize her perpetually.

James Baldwin, Notes of a Native Son
Every single politician, pundit, blogger, journalist, radical, reactionary, Christian, Muslim, straight, gay, bi, white, black, brown, purple, or spotted--in short anybody who thinks that stifling dissent and shouting the opposition into silence is what this country is about--needs to have Baldwin's words repeated to them on endless loop until they get it!
