Dumb Dittomonkey of the Day

I read the Feb. 2 article, "Rosa Parks shares day with symbol of movement," and was intrigued to learn the actual name of the driver of the bus. Much has been written about Parks' courage in refusing to relinquish her seat. But with all due respect to Parks, shouldn't the driver of the bus (James Blake) also be recognized as a hero during Black History Month? After all, where would the civil rights movement be today if he had not ordered her to give up her seat?
