I just awoke to the incredibly sad news that Coretta Scott King has died.

caelidh and I got to see her speak two summers ago when she returned to Antioch College (here is a link that mentions Antioch). It was a beautiful speech, and she was a very moving speaker. She also brought three of her kids along to check out her alma mater. We were incredibly jealous because our friend Mark got to hang out with her and give her a tour.

I knew she'd had a stroke over the summer, though the last report I read made it sound like she was on the road to recovery. I'm incredibly sorry that this was apparently not the case.

Feh. I want a cigarette.
