Fully adult voters? Or puerile crybabies?

I might wonder, today, whether I should avoid honoring Mary Harris “Mother” Jones as a hero. Her beliefs suggest that I should. While she was an avid and successful union organizer in the US until her death at age 93 in 1930, she did not believe in suffrage for women.* Since she didn't espouse ALL of my political requirements, I should--according to the political purists--fail to honor her.

Funny that, just this morning over breakfast, I lamented the modern habit of black and white political thinking. That is the thinking that allowed the Tories/Conservatives (for Americans, Tories are comparable to Republicans) to win the most recent UK elections.
