I have always wanted to go South Dakota to check out the carved heads in Mount Rushmore.

Aaron Huey is fighting a very difficult battle with a lot of implications but the defining moment for him was when he chose to take a side regardless of journalistic instincts and chose to stand up for what is right, no matter the odds.

“If we take the widest and wisest view of a Cause, there is no such thing as a Lost Cause, because there is no such thing as a Gained Cause. We fight for lost causes because we know that our defeat and dismay may be the preface to our successors’ victory, though that victory itself will be temporary; we fight rather to keep something alive than in the expectation that it will triumph.”
