From their state capitols to ours

My latest op-ed, title above, appeared in The Virginian-Pilot Wednesday. In it, I touched on the Trayvon Martin case, the Florida law and how such laws make their way across the country.

A much more detailed read on the latter appeared in the printed paper just below my column: this article by Paul Krugman. For those who follow Virginia politics closely, Krugman didn’t tell us what we didn’t already know. But for others, his article is an eye opener.

On a personal note, for those who have emailed me about my brother, here is something I wrote about him almost five years ago.
