Democrat from Kentucky
We promote fair and honest political discussion from all sides of the ideological spectrum While my own opinions and my contributors tend toward a more progressive view, that's not always the case. I ask people to comment freely and openly to promote fair discourse.

Coretta Scott King Dies Tuesday, January 31, 2006

Coretta Scott King, 78, was found dead late last night. And the world mourns.

King picked up the torch after her husband was shot down and she carried it and his legacy. Lots will be said about her in the coming days. Lots will be said about her husband as well. All I'll say is I know this country and the world is a better place for her having been here.

The Kings fought for more than just racial equality. They fought for socio-economic equality, so the poor could improve their life. Unfortunately, that part of their legacy has stalled.
