Honoring Rosa Parks

Reuters reports tonight that the Senate agreed on Wednesday to a resolution that would allow the body of Rosa Parks to lie in state in the Capitol Rotunda. If the measure is passed by the House, as is expected to occur tomorrow, Parks would be the first woman to be so honored. I can think of no better tribute to Ms. Parks, whose quiet protest sparked a sea change in American society that was much too long in coming.
