Seattle activist Dorli Rainey [Nov. 21st, 2011|09:21 am]

I mentioned to a few people, last night, an interview that Keith Olbermann did with 84-year-old Dorli Rainey, who was pepper-sprayed in Seattle. (That link goes to a photo that the Guardian calls "a powerful image of martyrdom".)

I therefore link it for y'all here, because it's so very much worth watching:

If you can't stand Keith Olbermann (and, hey, I totally understand that; I view him with a grain of salt and frequent eye-rolling), watch the video anyway, because it's ten minutes long and he only manages to get in three questions, one of which is "how are you feeling today?". (Her answer: "I am feeling great. I feel so energized. It's amazing what a little pepper spray will do for you.") And if you can't watch or listen to the video for whatever reason, there's a transcript posted at that link as well, though I think it's more powerful to hear Rainey tell the story herself.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy.
