helen keller statue unveiled at capitol

October 8, 2009

From CNN:

Helen Keller statue unveiled at Capitol

A fine tribute to Helen Keller, one of America’s most inspiring radicals—a champion for peace, women’s suffrage and worker’s rights.

Incidentally, the NewsHour also did a half-assed report on this story. The best part was listening to Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) dedicate the statue, saying, “By dedicating this statue in this place of giants, we show that those whom the world calls imperfect are not only worth our attention, they’re worth our highest honors.”

It makes me wonder how much the good senator from Kentucky really knows about her life, because I can’t imagine he’d knowingly praise an honest-to-goodness socialist.
