America, Can You Say 'SENATOR' Roland Burris?
Few of us knew anything about Roland Burris two weeks ago. Now his name is firmly etched in American history as only the fourth African American since the Reconstruction era to be sworn in as a United States Senator.
The Electronic Village joins with others in saluting this remarkable accomplishment.
Senator Burris now has a choice to make. Will his legacy be the manner in which he was appointed? Or will it be the manner in which he served as a representative for the state of Illinois?
Only time will tell. I, for one, wish the wise old lion well. Do us proud Senator!
