I Love the Smell of Progress in the Morning

Keith Ellison, a Muslim, won the Minnesota 5th District Congressional election. He will be the first Muslim ever to serve in the United States Congress.

Ellison was born in Detroit and converted to Islam when he was 19 years old. Before being elected, one of his most notable activities was helping to plan the Million Man March, sponsored by the Nation of Islam.

Because the Muslim population in and around Minnesota continues to grow, I would not be surprised to see more Muslims emerge as political contenders.

This, my friends, is what America is all about.
