Eric Holder is the head of the Justice Department as the U.S. Attorney General. And I like Mr. Holder. When I see him on TV, he is personable and wise and, yes, after Alberto Gonzales and John Ashcroft, that is a huge step forward.

Mr. Holder, is there any chance you could follow our own speech this year honoring the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.? You obviously know what is supposed to be done. I just do not have faith that you want to see it done or, that if you do want it, you have the tools to do so. I hope I am wrong.
