I generally steer clear of politics and policy issues, but in this day and age, can you avoid it completely?
I'm linking to an opinion column by Leonard Pitts. He and I don't agree on many things, but this was one thing we could agree upon.
When you're finished reading the column, please visit the Matthew Snyder website and consider donating. His dad's lawyers may be working pro bono, but there are still considerable legal expenses.
