Ruth Graham, wife of Billy Graham, died. Her obit in the Washington Post features this telling tidbit:
At a political rally in 1975, just as President Gerald Ford was about to speak, she got up from her seat, grabbed a war protester's sign, sat back down and slipped the sign under her white pumps. She told the media, "The man had every right to his opinion. But when the president of the United States is speaking, it is definitely not the place to express his opinion."

Roast, Ruth, roast.

Glad her energy is being more usefully deployed around the universe. Billy can't be far off 'going to a better place' either. Shame.

sam, i truly love your site(s)
i can't understand why they are making such a big deal about Billy Graham's dead wife.

It has been a featured news story on Google for the past five days. Joel says they have a slot for right wing religious news and this has been a slow news week for celebrities. I mean Paris is in jail and Anna Nicole is dead.
