I wish she didn't surrender like this. "I'm not a political person," she says, but what we need are the people who "aren't political people" to GET political, to MAKE this an issue. The US is still a democracy, for the most part. It responds to enough people making a loud enough riot (the Tea Party is ample evidence of that and, to a lesser degree, so is Occupy). Smart and principled people need to stand wherever they can, and know that they don't stand alone when they do. It's pointless to just have empty hope for some different future. Do something about it, today.
