  •  That Melissa Harris-Perry clip (2+ / 0-)

    is one very righteous rant.  I love to watch it.

    There's a hard-to-define emotion I have when reading the news item about the last Pullman Porter. I wanted to label it "melancholy" but that doesn't capture exactly what I think I'm experiencing. It's both respect and admiration, but something else that I can get a handle on, something about the knowledge and understanding of the value and strength of something (or someones) only becoming widely known and apparent after it is gone: a kind of hindsight-cholia?

    Maybe I'm just babbling, I've had a hell of a day and everything seems to be a struggle for words lately.

    Words can sometimes, in moments of grace, attain the quality of deeds. --Elie Wiesel
