    A gay man, Oliver Sipple, saved Ford from assassination. Afterwards Ford was too craven to invite him to the White House or even give him a call.

    I always remember around the same time, on a visit to Vermont a teenage driver had a minor car accident with the presidential limo (not great at closing off roads that day). That kid got a call from Ford. Sipple didn't.

    I don't expect perfection from a president, but Ford's ability to be a "good, caring human being" had its limitations when it came to gay people.

    Justice for Trayvon.
