We remember Hank Aaron who was born on this day in 1934 and died January 2021.

Aaron hit # 1 in 1954 and # 755 in 1976.   His record was eventually "broken" by Barry Bonds in 2007.   Aaron still holds the records for most career RBI (2,297), most career total bases (6,856) and most career extra base hits (1,477). 

After retiring as a player, Aaron became one of baseball's first black executives, with the Atlanta Braves.    He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1982.

A word about Rosa Parks (1913-2005)

Rosa Parks was born on this day in 1913.    She died in 2005.

There are two kinds of people in the world. There are those who accept injustice and then there is Rosa Parks.

Many years ago, Parks refused to sit at the back of the bus. She challenged an injustice and sparked a movement.

Parks did not seek fame but she left us quite a legacy.   It's quite a story.

2005: President Bush's historic appointments

President Bush got off to a historic start with his second term Cabinet appointments. 

President Bush will have a black woman as Secretary of State and a Mexican-American man as Attorney General.

Imagine that.  A conservative Republican appoints the first black woman as Secretary of State. She replaces the first black man as Secretary of State.

I guess that Republicans are indeed the party of Lincoln!

Imagine more.   A conservative Republican appoints the first Mexican-American as Attorney General.

Alberto Gonzalez is a great American story, or as they say "Only in America"

He is the son of poor Mexican immigrants.  He worked hard and made his way to Harvard Law School. In the 1990's, he met Governor Bush in Texas and will soon be the next Attorney General of the US.

We are very proud that a fellow Hispanic from Texas was the Attorney General of the US.

Well done, Alberto!
