hey senator.

one of my favorite websites, the usually vitriolic(they keep calling the inauguration a "coronation") Buzzflash.com has a quick editorial on the ol' Senator, Wellstone. they are also offering the newly released documentary on him. i haven't seen it yet but saw a rough cut of some scenes about a year ago. it is always invigorating watching him speak. the same feeling you get when you see MLK speechificating or watch Bruce Springsteen or Chuck D perform. after he died i remember MPR played several of his more historic and significant speeches in the senate and on various campaign trails. unlike most "politicians" these days, he truly was the real deal.
