    Disgraceful. Apparently he has never heard of anyone named Rosa Parks. Out of respect for the nation, you would think his handlers could take him aside for a few hours and teach him how to pronounce her name. It's only three syllables.

    Mark Riley of Morning Sedition has apparently interviewed Parks and done research for some project of his. He made an interesting point: There was no actual law on bus seating, just custom enforced by the bus drivers and other forces of social control. According to Riley, there was some confusion about what to even charge her with. Finally she was charged with disorderly conduct. And so it began.

    Reclaim our history. These stories are everywhere. Many thanks again for this diary.

    -7.88, -7.74 In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies but the silence of our friends.
