Thoughts from a Yellow Dog Democrat living in Olympia, in the great BLUE state of Washington

I am a liberal because it is the political philosophy of freedom and equality. And I am a progressive because it is the political path to a better future. And I am a Democrat because it is the political party that believes in freedom, equality and progress. -- Digby

Tough Week for Liberals

We baby booming liberals lost 4 greats in the past week --

Stew Albert -- Yippie founder, one of the Chicago 8, tried to promote cooperation. Taught us that you can have fun during the struggle.

Betty Freidan -- Who like Prince Charming, kissed us women in the '60's, gave a rationale for our mother's depression and poor self esteem, and woke us up to a different life.

Corretta King -- Dignified wife, victim of the FBI, witness to history, conscious to us all.

Wendy Wasserstein -- told our dark secrets and gave us hope because we realized we weren't alone.

They each touched and enhanced my life. I'll miss each of them.
