My Great-Aunt Dorothy-Mae was laid to rest in Detroit yesterday.
Aunt ‘Dot’ was a sweet lady, Granny's baby sister, and the youngest of her
family. Her health hadn't
the last few years. Having passed away in her early 70s,
her life span was
20 years shorter than most of her siblings. Frail as she
was when Granny died, she got on a train to New Orleans to be there for the
funeral. She was buried the day after
Coretta Scott King, the First Lady of the Civil Rights Movement. A bit younger
than Ms. King, my aunt was more or less a contemporary of one of the most significant
figures in Civil rights. It's strange to think that in some ways I know more
about Ms. King's life, than I know about the life of my own family member.
Black History Month
is off to an interesting start, with the death of one
of the last living symbols of the Movement on the same day as the appointment
of Judge Alito to the Supreme Court. If there is any kind of awareness after
must have gotten a kick out of the send-off she got, which included the political
gibing of 4 US presidents — a dignitary's funeral for someone who, at the time
of her husband's death, was probably considered an enemy of the state. I imagine
Bush the Son must have been pissed that Bill Clinton was clearly the favorite
among the Presidents attending the ceremony.

All that in the subject line of an e-mail I received two days ago. Bad spelling
and verbosity.I heard that a couple of the e-mail giants are planning to start
charging to send e-mail. Not so sure I'm liking the sound of that, but if it
catches on, maybe it will be a disencentive for spammers.
I had hoped to post more today, but just couldn't get it together. There's
a lot going on — news worth commenting on, and distractions in my life. I really
do like writing though. Time to get back to more regular blogging. Yeah, you've
read that before, right? Time and typing will tell...
