The Sisters Are Doing It For Themselves
In Oregon we are extremely proud of our diversity. Sisters, the town where I live for example, is about 50% white and 50% black. Cowboy hats, that is. To honor that open-mindedness I have recently been collecting signatures to petition the state to rename the Three Sisters Mountains. The "Sisters", the three gorgeous mountains that dominate the landscape here, are presently known as Faith, Hope and Charity. Nice, but a bit 18th century. I'm suggesting they be renamed Beyonce, LaToya and Lil' Kim. Who's with me?
