Can I just take a minute to brag on my friend and relative Sara Shipley Hiles? She is a free-lance journalist and just got a big story published in Mother Jones magazine. Mother Jones! People! Politics! Other Passions! I love this magazine, and it thrills me to my very bones to be related to a contributor.
Anyway, you should all go read it! In this election season it's good to read about people trying to make a difference, and also about how much work there still is to be done.
