You Do Your Thing, And Let Me Do Mine
The story at CNN.com, an article about her at PBS.org, and a selection of her quotes.
Shirley was a breath of fresh air, and voting for her was more a blow for hope than anything else. Unfortunately it was also a blow on behalf of Nixon, and it set me off on my career-long losing streak of voting for 3rd-party candidates clear up until last year, when I finally voted with the Dems, and really thought I was backing a winner.
Screw it. Shirley was a great woman, and more of a man than any of the damnfools that have sat in the office in the past 30 years.
Wish Barbara Jordan could have made it, too.
