turns of phrase

I love Ta-Nehisi Coates.  I don't know or care overly much about half the shit he writes about, but I'll read him on pretty much anything.  And sometimes he writes something so obvious, yet so beautiful, in its clarity that I want to shout it from the rooftops.

"Via The Atlantic Wire, Steve King claims he's never heard of anyone getting pregnant from statutory rape. Specifically he said that it isn't "a circumstance that's been brought to me in any personal way." 

Again the thing about power is that it makes opening your eyes optional."
