Editor’s Note:

Friends and readers, it has been a very long time since TMA put out a new issue.  In anticipation of the new issue in December, I’ve decided to put out a mini-issue with a few election related commentaries from Alvaro Vargas Llosa of the Independent Institute and a piece on interracial dating from Ria Rodriguez.  In addition, TMA has been very busy with the long standing civil liberties coalition work it has participated in for years, which has been documented below for 2008.
