Money Media Cover Change Makers Most When They're Dead
It's amazing how money media cover activists, when they die. When radical philosopher and organizer Grace Lee Boggs passed away on October 5, she received long, respectful obituaries in just about every paper. "Activist and revolutionary", "trail blazer", "human rights advocate". Boggs, it was noted, lived to 100 years old. But it shouldn't take a century for the media to notice Bogg's ilk - the activists in their hometowns.
