Res ipsa loquitur

There is a lesson here

The speaker, Joel Burns, is a city councilman in Fort Worth. There is much that can be said about this tremendously brave speech, but I’ll leave that to others. For me, Joel’s words speak more than enough.

That something like this could be uttered in the Cowtown city council chamber, and that the speaker could receive a unanimous standing ovation is all but astounding. Only a few years ago such a speech very likely would have resulted in a far different response.

Perhaps there is hope.
