A few days ago we were in Shadyside, eating gelato and visiting with a friend. She looked upon the face of baby Alice,with her olive skin and cocoa hair, and proclaimed that she is what America will look like in the future.

That is, an America in which we see people before we see race--a country in which we won't think twice about the color of a person's skin before casting our vote for President.

I hope to God she's right.
