    not too many women in America like her anymore. Not too many people, for that matter.

    Portland's Love Makes a Family, CodePink and Seriously POd Grannies lost a wonderful human this week. Bonnie Tinker. She was hit and killed by a Mack Truck while riding her bike while visiting Virgina. She was 61. She fought like hell for the living.

        You're missing a "t' on Janet ;) Silly.

        Anyways, she was part of the Rocking Chair Brigade in Portland who sat in rockers outside of the recruiters office on Broadway. The same one that tried to enlist an autistic student.

        The Army was so threatened by a bunch of grandmas in rockers on a public sidewalk that they called the police each time and had to close up shop and run away. Finally they had them arrested. Which made the recruiters and Army of None look pathetic.

          Now we have more military and the cheering masses seeing, Sadly, that we were Right All Along, and the Proof we said was there is even public, and much more!!

          They should have listened to us 'focus groups', now the Bloods on all our hands, as it continues!!
