You know, here we are fighting for gay marriage when two guys can’t even walk into Quiznos on a college campus in this town in safety. Seriously, maybe we need to focus on just the remedial human rights. I don’t know.
I was talking to the Professor this weekend about how part of the problem with seeking social justice is that, many times, there’s no one sympathetic to your goals in a high enough position to see all the fires. No one in a position to notice that they’re not just isolated unfortunate incidents, but part of a larger pattern.
I don’t know how one gets that kind of perspective, but there are places in town where it is sorely needed.
