    March 31 marks the birthday of National Farm Workers Association (later United Farm Workers) co-founder Cesar Chavez. Chavez, who was trained by Saul Alinsky in the tactics of community organizing, has become a cult figure in California due to his organization of agricultural workers.

    March 31 also happens to be another important date this year: Easter. So, naturally, Google’s current logo features a graphic of Chavez’s face, rather than anything having to do with Easter.

    Quite the pickle for Google. Put up an Easter Bunny and have some say it's idolatry. Put up a pic of Jesus Rising from His tomb and get the anti-Christian folks in a tizzy.

    Putting up some guy named Chavez that most people don't know was the safe choice.

    I'll be having a whiskey is about an hour to calm my nerves for the slight.

    Or was the early whiskey-imbibing plan for different reasons?

    Now I'm really upset.

    gays, libs, hollywood, media, etc, live and breath to piss off the Christian conservative right. Even to the detriment of the country. It's what sustains them.

    Next year Easter is on April 20th. Isn't that Ralph's birthday? Maybe Google will put up Ralph's picture in place of Chavez's.
