Rest In Peace

Lady Bird Johnson died today at the age of 94. She was the wife of President Lyndon Johnson, who became president on November 22, 1963 in Dallas, TX, when John F. Kennedy was assasinated there. She is pictured here (left) standing behind her husband as he takes the oath of office on Air force One, with stunned widow Jackie Kennedy on the right. Lady Bird Johnson survived her husband by 33 years.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
