Family members of Rosa Parks stand next to an image of the commemorative postage stamp unveiled on what would have been her 100th birthday. (Carlos Osorio / Associated Press /
If you're going to make "forever" stamps, it's hard to go wro"I do the very best I can to look upon life with optimism and hope and looking forward to a better day, but I don't think there is anything such as complete happiness. It pains me that there is still a lot of Klan activity and racism. I think when you say you're happy, you have everything that you need and everything that you want, and nothing more to wish for. I haven't reached that stage yet." Rosa Parks Mother of the Civil Rights Movement

After yesterday's intense scrutiny of Mental Health Violence and Quality Control, we go to the flip side of the issue, with a civil rights poem and a creative description of the void too deep for psychology. I wish to emphasize however, we are looking at the exact same problem (Quality Control), just through a different filter.
A Fuss on a Bus "A Fuss on a Bus" is (currently) Chapter 23 in my book "Enough! Losing the Scarlet Letter. The end of self-imposed adult abuse."
It starts out like this:
Hey Rosa . . . The eyes of the world were upon you Way way back . . . back in nineteen and sixty two All the world wondered A nation had blundered . . . Summer stopped to stand stark still in sweltering stasis . . . Men, and even senators stood supine The foolish beguiled the wise . . . A woman took a mighty nation to its moral knees . . .
I think everyone will enjoy this poem about Rosa Parks.
4 A.M. Someplace "4 A.M. Someplace" is (currently) Chapter 8 in my book "Enough! Losing the Scarlet Letter. The end of self-imposed adult abuse."
It's the artsy touchie feelie side of the same quality control argument i tried to make yesterday in much more logical terms. It starts out like this:
The Wal-Mart fan rattles on the scratched gritty wooden floor and blows the smells of new and ancient sweat off thin unwashed sheets affixed to the rough fibered blue surface of the sleeper couch below; and troubled minds are spinning in circles balancing shaky human alliances and application of scarce resources to problems, like an overmatched general pitting starving troops on a wet frozen battlefield against a superior well fed mechanized opponent.

Today I will be participating in the Sista-toSista visiting team going to Central California Women's Facility in Chowchilla, California, which means I will be on the road at 6 AM, so we are going on a bit earlier and rebroadcasting a couple of popular shows with one new interview. On the occation of Mrs. Rosa Parks's anniversary of her passing October 24, we rebraodcast an interview with biographer Dr. Jeanne Theoharis, whose The Rebellious Life of Mrs, Rosa Parks dispells myths as it enlightens audiences to a truer picture of this phonomenal woman. We close with an interview with Roger Ross Williams, the director, God Loves Uganda, another wonderful selection at the 2013 UNAFF which continues through Sunday, October 27, 2013.
