He would head to Katrina benefits
tonight and Friday, for one thing, if he were around Minneapolis. Okay, I actually have no idea what Paul Wellstone
would do. But the third anniversary of his death passed today, and it just seems too eerie not to say anything, too accepting of the fact. Rent the movie
about him, pick up the books
to a song
for him, or read the old City Pages memorial issue
. Or better yet, do something, anything, for somebody else, anybody else, to make the world (as they say) a better place. I don't know if that's what he'd do, but it's what you do if you want to be a human being. End of sermon.
