Eighty-seven years ago today, on August 18, 1920, the 19th Amendment to the Constitution---which would give women the right to vote---was ratified
. It took the menfolk a mere 134 years to get their asses off the couch and make it a reality. Now if you'll just take out the garbage and fix the leak in the bathroom you might get some nookie.
Profiles in courage. A couple of folks died recently who deserve a fond goodbye toast. Photographer Joe O'Donnell was best known for capturing the moment when John Kennedy, Jr. saluted his father's coffin. But his most important photos were those he took---without the military's knowledge---of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. He later became a strong activist against nuclear weapons.
