About the author

I am the author, co-author, secondary-author, ghost-author, and non-author of articles, speeches, book chapters, and even entire books! The most recent can be found at LosingMyReligions.net. Currently, I am President of One Step for Animals; previously, I was shitcanned from so many nonprofits that we can’t list them all here. Before my unfortunate encounter with activism, I was an aerospace engineer who wanted to work for NASA (to impress Carl Sagan). My hobbies include photography, almost dying, and {REDACTED}. I live in Tucson with my soulmate and reluctant editor Anne, along with the occasional snake and scorpion.

For Martin Luther King, Jr. Day: NSFW Commentary on the Senator Who Demeans His Memory

Alyssa’s take to the first take is spot on. But note: I didn't say it!



Video should automatically start at 58:09.

PS: Martin Luther King III: “History will remember Sen. Sinema unkindly… She's siding with the legacy of Bull Connor and George Wallace instead of the legacy of my father and all those who fought to make real our democracy.” 

“I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in the stride toward freedom is not the White Citizens Councilor or the Ku Klux Klanner but the White moderate who is more devoted to 'order' than to justice.”
-Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, 1963

“I think the tragedy is that we have a Congress with a Senate that has a minority of misguided senators who will use the filibuster to keep the majority of people from even voting.” 
-Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., 1963

And this one, for personal reasons:
“In the end we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”
-Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
