On Mrs. King

Later, when I am in a better mood and I can reflect on her life and all she meant to women like me--who admired her grace and poise and outspokeness--I will write a post in honor of Mrs. King.

But today, in my less-than-stellar-mood, the cynic in me triumphs. Mrs. King and Mrs. Parks within months of each other. Just at the time the appointment of Samuel Alito and all he stands for slaps many of us in the face.

It as if the death of these beautiful, wonderful, brave women is marking the death of something else...
