History Will Tell
The flags flew at half-staff Wednesday for Rosa Parks.
The flags flew at half-staff for nine days for William Rehnquist.
Who will be better remembered in 50 years?
Whose actions were retrograde and whose actions were progressive?
Granted, Rosa Parks only did one thing (but it was a biggie)
and Rehnquist was a government official.
But it's an illuminating glimpse into their importance in the Administration's eyes.
P.S. Rehnquist's proclamation came out the day after he died; Parks', 5 days.
