Reading of the day

by Steve Nelson,
The Huffington Post (from December 8, 2010)

Nearly all the heated rhetoric suggests that children are nothing but small units of future production, especially in the saddest precincts of South Central, Baltimore, Harlem, Cleveland, Detroit and the other abandoned parcels of our divided nation.”
