Laurel Hester

After changing New Jersey pension benefits rules in an heroic battle fought in the midst of an upsurge in homophobia fed by the political gay-baiting of right-wingers who drop the issue like a hot potato at the end of every election cycle, Laurel Hester died on Saturday at the age of 49. I hope she died proud of the legacy she would leave as one great soldier in a war against the same old forces that are forever trying to reserve one set of human rights for themselves while meting out a smaller set for everyone else. A memorial mass will be held on March 4th.
