46. I'm surprised you think you could get away with this.
For the record, I am no Rosa Parks. For one thing, there is no guarantee I will even need to say a word as I may very well not be targeted for additional screening. Let's not count the eggs in the basket, shall we?

However, Rosa Parks did not have a plan when she got on that bus, nor did she have an organization backing her. Revisionist history on that one and it shouldn't go without note. She was tired and didn't want to move. At the point she made that decision she could not have been aware what was going to happen next in her name. I'm a little tired of those who reposition her as some sort of activist saint. She was a tired human being who became a symbol and motivation for a boycott. I have no pretensions that I would even come close to what she became, nor do I want to be.
