What a wonderful way to start the new year to see the names of hundreds of folks who have shared their ideas about government in the State Journal

U.S. Sen. Hubert Humphrey, D-Minn., urged everyone in Minnesota to share their thoughts, because the purpose of government is to help people. He sent letters to high school graduates in the state to get involved. 

My effort for 60 of the last 82 years has been to urge people to become informed and vote.
