William Sloane Coffin Dies at 81

We lost a great voice for humanity this past week. An inspiration for most of my life Rev William Sloan Coffin had a steady moral compass. He will be remembered and greatly missed.
From the New York Times:

Dr. Coffin, a believer in the power of civil disobedience to bring social and political change, was arrested as a Freedom Rider early in the 1960’s and was an early admirer of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

  • So Christian tells me that I need to check your blog out… and that we’d have tons to talk about about Philadelphia and education reform and such… and the first entry I see is one that looks like the one I wrote about Rev. Coffin. I think Christian was right that we probably do have a lot to talk about.
