The Firebrand and the First Lady

Just finished this book last night:

The Firebrand & the First Lady: Portrait of a Friendship

Pauli Murray, Eleanor Roosevelt & the Struggle for Social Justice

What an amazing read. Now of course I need to go back and read more about them both. Definitely a sense of true perspective on what’s important in life from a person on the outside nearly all her life, vs. one of the preeminent females in American history, if not also the world. Their friendship and decades-long relationship is an inspiration for us all.

finally got back to Flight to Mars last night after an absence of 3 years – true, ROCK. This was the 15th year show – ‘wow’ doesn’t begin to describe it, definitely one of the best rock shows I’ve seen in a long time – looking at the most recent years (that i’ve missed) it looks like they’ve been on a Thin Lizzy kick of late too – there were several played last night – great stuff!

someone video’d the opening F2M song:

Looks like Mr McCready broke out a little Eruption in the Sat show:

Previous years’ clips can be seen from this search too.
