Overload

bedlamhouse posts here with a link to Eric Zorn's Chicago Tribune column on yesterday's rallies in favor of -- not to mince words -- illegal immigration. It concludes with a truly touching reference to a young girl wearing a t-shirt with the slogan written on it with a marker pen, "Don't Take My Dreams Away".

And it's true. It's heartbreaking to think of doing that. And what does it hurt if you take care of one young girl?

Now, I didn't write yesterday's post thinking about this particular issue at all. But isn't it a similar question?

One young girl here illegally pursuing a dream is not a problem. One person who doesn't vote is not a problem.

But it's a problem if no one votes. And 11 million illegal immigrants is a problem too.

Isn't it?
