  •  I probably knew of Daniels (10+ / 0-)

    in the back of my mind, being Episcopalian and all. Never knew of Viola Liuzzo. And considering the source (J. Edgar Hoover), I'm not surprised there was a smear campaign; he wasn't all that fond of MLK and the Civil Rights Movement anyway.

    But of course, if a man gives his life for what is right, he's a hero; if a woman gives her life, especially if she leaves behind a husband and kids, she's obviously evil for not staying by her true God-given duty to her family.

    Settling in for a sports evening; preseason baseball and NHL hockey. Why God created the remote control. :-)

      •  Not that advanced here (8+ / 0-)

        We're thinking of treating ourselves to a flat-screen for our anniversary gift next month; since we're saving money on our rent the next two months (due to the renovations being made and the general chaos it's causing), we'll have a little bit of disposable income, and they've really come down in price. With all the sports we watch, it would be worth it, and our 20 year old CRT is definitely on its last legs.

        Speaking of the renovations, got our new window and sliding door in yesterday; they still have to put up the screen door but I can tell the difference already. The window and door are double paned, so it's not nearly as cold here on the couch as it used to be (the couch is adjacent to the sliding door) and they also fixed the blinds (had a missing slat) so the light doesn't come in as much. Once the fence around the patio is back up I'm looking forward to having the blinds and door open more often; I'd also like to find a small bistro table set that we can use to eat outside when the weather's warm.

    •  I have serious reservations (6+ / 0-)

      about any parent (father or mother) who participates in an activity in which he or she can be seriously injured or killed before the children are grown and independent.  Steve Irwin is the poster child, but in my opinion, any parent of young children who goes rock climbing without a belay line, or sky-diving, etc., should have his or her head examined.

      Now Viola Liuzzo was doing something risky, but at least she was doing it for the betterment of humanity.  These other risky activities don't have such redeeming qualities.
