Checking in with Billie Jean

Cokie Roberts has an interview with Billie Jean King in this weekend's USA Weekend magazine. They talk about the state of women's sports, Hillary Clinton, history and the future. Remember, the Sports Museum of America opens next month in Manhattan. One wing is dedicated to housing the Billie Jean King International Women's Sports Center.

In somewhat related news: softball player Jessica Mendoza has been elected the new president of the Women's Sports Foundation and will take office in 2009--after her participation in the 2008 Summer Games.
