Pat, Walter, and Hampton--
I know that we have differences among us on some very important policy points, including questions related to energy, pollution control, and budget policy. However, I believe that we all share a basic commitment to the fundamental Democratic ideal of justice for all. I think that I know a good way for us to show that.
That's why I sent you an email invitation this afternoon to join me at the second "Historic Thousands on Jones Street" rally and march in Raleigh on February 9. It's a major event in support of economic and social justice in North Carolina. It's organized by the N.C. NAACP and co-sponsored by more than 60 labor, faith, environmental, and other citizen groups.
I took part in the first "HKonJ" last year and found it both enlightening and inspiring. If you can make it this year, I believe you'll find the experience to be more than worth your while.
And while I'm at it, let me extend that invitation to everyone reading this invitation on BlueNC. I'll hope to see you there.
