So join me in a resolution for 2011: Say goodbye to complacency in a heartless world, to deference, didacticism, ego and the need to always be right, goodbye to prisons and border guards and walls—whether in Palestine or in Texas—and goodbye to quarantines, deletions, and closures.  Goodbye to all that. (At the End of the Decade)
Jose Vilson

“We have woken up. We are going to go around the country letting everybody know who stands with us and who stood against us.” (Immigration Vote Leaves Obama’s Policy in Disarray--NYT)
