Rosa Parks

With the craven warmongerers of the Bush Administration in trouble, let us remember a woman famous for a seemingly small, yet earthshaking act of courage.

Rosa Parks died yesterday, at the age of 92.

When Parks "stood up" to segregation laws, by not sitting in the back of the bus, it came at precisely the right moment to create a firestorm. It not only highlighted the stupidity of such laws, through a series of events it gave voice to Martin Luther King, Jr, who lived in the same town, Montgomery, Alabama.

History's Hero

Compare Ms. Parks mug shot and her nobility to that steaming pile under a cheap rug that is the mug shot of Tom "Smiley" DeLay.
