    :: Wednesday, May 07, 2008 ::
    Mildred Loving, RIP. I adopt as "for the editors" the statement of the Family Research Council:
    America lost a true pioneer for civil rights yesterday as Mildred Loving, a black woman famous for her successful challenge of a state interracial marriage ban, died at the age of 68. Together with her husband Richard, the Loving case, which reached the Supreme Court in 1967, was an important landmark in the battle for racial equality. Never one to take credit for her courage, Mildred said last June, "I never wanted to be a hero--just a bride." Although homosexual activists are fond of portraying the Lovings' victory as a precedent for their cause, the Loving case didn't alter the definition of marriage but affirmed it by allowing any man to marry any woman. The nation is indebted to Mildred for a legacy that so aptly lives up to the couple's shared name.
    EDITED TO ADD: PBS interviews Bernard Cohen, the Lovings' Supreme Court counsel. Hat-tip: colleague Prof. Gloria Whittico.
