another brave soul

Vaclav Havel writes in today's NYT:
Whenever I reflect on the problems of today’s world, whether they concern the economy, society, culture, security, ecology or civilization in general, I always end up confronting the moral question: what action is responsible or acceptable? The moral order, our conscience and human rights — these are the most important issues at the beginning of the third millennium.
Amen. When are we going to get a president like that?

I have jury duty, for the first time, tomorrow.
