An odd and spontaneous call from Vibe magazine had me covering an event at Rev. Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow PUSH headquarters on the South Side Saturday.
It was a pleasure to hear the Reverend preach (he’s funnier and more charismatic in church than when debating Pat Buchannan on MSNBC), and an equal pleasure to hear his followers respond.
In response to Jackson’s imploring of young people to vote, a woman seated behind me shouted an amen:
"Get off your booty and do your duty!"
