Fred Shuttlesworth
"He marched into the jaws of death every day in Birmingham before we got there." -- Andrew Young
The Mayor of Wall Street
"What they're trying to do is take the jobs away from people working in this city," the mayor declared in his harshest criticism of the three-week-old protest that has caught the attention of the nation. "They're trying to take away the tax base we have because none of this is good for tourism." -- N.Y. Post
AFT Pres. Randi Weingarten
"They are basically sending us a message that says, 'Don't create a society where one percent basically has all the wealth.'" -- CBS News
The GOP and the DOE
“You can imagine the Republican candidate is saying, ‘Not only do I want to end the Education Department as a bureaucratic monster, but I want to defund programs for needy kids or special-needs kids,’ or ‘I want to let states spend those dollars on other kids.’ That’s a very difficult debate for the Republican candidate.” -- Frederick M. Hess, director of education policy at the conservative American Enterprise Institute,

  1. Thanks for blogging about Fred Shuttlesworth. He was a great man who has gotten lost in all the Steve Jobs cult worship. I guess he picked a bad time to die but he lived a life worth celebrating.
