S-R didn’t give Hillary the proper credit

When something historical happens I usually save the newspaper announcement, at least for a while. Not so today.

Yesterday at the DNC for the first time in the history of our nation a woman has been nominated for president of the United States. The convention closed last night with Hillary Clinton “breaking the glass ceiling.” What did I find this morning on the front page? Yes, the headline was there but the only picture was of her husband. The story continued on page 14, no picture there either. However, on page 15, she was finally depicted in a disgusting political cartoon.

Did you think that the women of the region wouldn’t notice? So I may save this newspaper edition but only for the purpose of showing how hard it is for a woman (even as a potential president of the United States) to get the credit that she has earned.
