Bye-bye to Jerry Falwell
Posted by: Chris
The first thing that came to mind was something the first-ever female president of my college alumni association once told me. Talking about the notoriously slow pace of progress on our alma mater's board of trustees, she said, "What we need for some real change is a few good funerals." Indeed.
As for me, tonight brings a flight back to Rio, which actually feels like going "home" after living there since September with my partner. But this time is different; I'll finally be working "without a net" — no apartment back in Washington. Wish me luck...!
As I climb on board "the new Delta," take a few minutes to enjoy a fitting bye-bye to Jerry from Tinky Winky, who the televangelist infamously outed back in 1999.
