History According to the 4.5-year-old (plus Pink)

Hamish and his Mommies love Pink. He knows all the words (clean versions) and dances along. In preschool he was learning about the Civil Rights movement. Rosa Parks was told to go sit at the back of the bus. Hamish protests: "She should say to the bus driver…" (he stands with his hands on hips):

"So what, I'm still a rock star,
I've got my rock moves, and I don't need you.
And guess what, I'm having more fun,
and now that we're done, I'm gonna show you…."

(Ugh, another full disclosure: I've been telling this story wrong for months: it was Susan B. Anthony.)
