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.

Social Forum

The U.S. Social Forum is coming up. You should be there. We're trying to see if we can go, but the hotels are booking up quickly. Keep an eye out for History Is A Weapon if you go.

p.s. loving the latest Kristian Williams' book, American Methods.
