Patsy's from Maui, Hawaii - and Peyton draws deep ecological and political parallels between Hawaii and Louisiana. Plus: Worker strikes numbering in the 1000s, the Revolution of 1954!!, the DNA of a Representative, you don't have to be in management to be a leader, Patsy fights segregation she faces in Nebraska, Korematsu v. United States, Title IX and how it helps explain Kedro's beliefs, the Patsy Mink Equal Opportunity in Education Act is as smooth to say as the John Lewis Voting Rights Act, and much more!!!
