She has a dream

Posted By on Wed, Dec 31, 2008 at 6:41 AM

State Rep. Lindsley Smith of Fayetteville dreams that reason will prevail in the Arkansas legislature and pour the mighty stream of equal rights down on women. In other words, she is, as long promised, planning to try again to win legislative approval of the Equal Rights Amendment.

The Family Council and the usual rank opportunists (Gilbert Baker comes to mind) will wave whatever bloody shirt is handy -- unisex bathrooms, abortion, homosexuality and, who knows, maybe they can find a way to bring in union bashing, too -- to beat this simple declaration of equality of rights under the law.
