Truest statement of the week

At this point, the main issue is modeled behaviors, organization skills and leadership. Students are no longer waiting for independent media to provide any of that. They grew impatient, as anyone would. Those of us no longer young America should be able to remember our impatience, and as much as Bob Dylan's "The Times They Are A'Changing" continues to be quoted today, you'd think the older adults could grasp it (and grasp that they have gone from the ones who wished those not lending a hand would get out of the way to becoming the ones very much in the way). That's become the reality of today.

-- C.I., "And the war drags on . . ." What does it take to make "Truest statement of the week"? In this case, 21 impassioned e-mails from students all selecting this. (We suspect Goldie organized the e-mails. We could be wrong.)
