91st


It's the 91st anniversary of the ratification of the 19th amendment, which gave women the right to vote.

And this article about Harry Burn, the 24 year old member of the Tennessee State House who cast that deciding vote because his mother told him to, is still awesome.

“I know that a mother’s advice is always the safest for a boy to follow.”
