Great REBEL stuff. With the exception of the tennis player, all were willing to pay a heavy price. Happy Mute Monday.

Stirring stuff.

Ah, but Art, the tennis player was more an inspiration for little girls than, let's say, Margaret Thatcher. The idea that females could play for equal pay, (or work for equal pay) well now, that whole notion was revolutionary even as late as the 70's. BJK never really got to enjoy the fruits of her labor, so to speak, working all her professional life for a mere pittance as compared to her male colleages.

Hey--these here is jes' terrific ! Marevelous Ms. Place. I almost put Rosa Parks too--but was 'fraid that some would misundersand the use wif' them Confederates--was tryin' to keep mah theme to those fightin' fer country, rebels fer the cause of their own nationhood. I likes the interpretation of rebels with a true purpose.

Well, cain't say enough--this here is real fine. Love the use of Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the 2007 Monks--not enough been said on that, ya know??? Real fine job ya done here.
