Lena Horne, One of Our Greats

Lena Horne's death at 92 makes me think how our icons make us feel safer. "The elders", as august African villages would refer to them, are the austere people that infuse us with culture and tradition. Lena Horne was one of those people. But the joyful twist is this: she still is one of those people. Goodbye, Ms. Horne...
