Yesterday in Alabama

There have been several comments to yesterday’s post about the Dec. 12 U.S. Senate election in Alabama. That post, and the comments were all written and published hours before the polls closed in Alabama last night.

If we choose, the Alabama election can be a learning opportunity for every one of us, about most everything about the contemporary political process in the United States: how it works; how it is functional and dysfunctional; how each of us fit into “politics”.

In a recent post I referenced retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connors project on restoring Civics literacy. Take a look, here. Engage yourself, and help engage others.

POSTNOTE: Much more, if you wish: “Stars Falling On Alabama Last Night”
