"V" is for Vashti

I don't think Vashti has ever gotten a fair shake. (She was the queen whom Esther replaced.) Esther was great, really. And I know that she was there for "Such a time as this". She did save her people from extinction, it's true, but really, all Vashti did was say that she didn't want to get shown off to a bunch of drunk men just because her husband called for her....

I don't know. What do you think?

I agree. Seems like a set up.

I've always felt a bit sorry for Vashti, too.
