Questioning choice of quotes

Words of wisdon should always be welcomed, but there were two offerings in the "Words of Wisdom" column in the News-Sentinel that deserve to be questioned, or their source, anyway.

The quotes came from Frida Kahlo, a communist twice-married to the Communist Mexican muralist Diego Rivera. When buried, her casket was covered by a large white flag with the Red Star, the symbol of the Soviet Union, just as the bald eagle is our nation's symbol.

Such a choice of persons to quote would be fine in Berkeley or San Francisco, but Lodi hasn't sunk quite that low yet.
