I don't post here much, but an appreciation thread is (IMO) in order…

A thread for NRaleighLiberal!

I have been a gardener since as long as I can remember. I love growing my own stuff.

That said, NRaleighLiberal is an amazing resource in this group and deserves a huge appreciation.

To every gardener on DU:

I am going outside to plant. We have 4 years of spent grain (home brewers) compost that is rich, lucious soil and filled with earthworms that I have a need, a need -- for seed!

Keep on planting on! and once again, thank you NRaleighLiberal for all you do!

Not only do I love the Grateful Dead, I also love Mr. Bob Dylan.

I've spent a good portion of my afternoon listening to Bob Dylan Radio -- they play all sorts of dylan stuff. Live concerts. people who have covered him and the covers he has done of other people.

I loved this cover:

I want to ask a question, and it comes from an honest and naive place.

I just read this post http://www.democraticunderground.com/10024761241

I agree with the OP, this is a right. (it's a shame that a right needs to be legislated) but it popped a question into my head. Blu

Does DU have any AA members that experienced/lived through the era prior to the civil rights act being signed into law?

I would love to read the perspective of what people thought after it was signed into law. Did supporters of the Civil Rights Act(s) ever feel like they had to apologize for what it did? Did the CRA have the same kind of reaction that the ACA is having?

It's my opinion that the CRA could have gone farther, but my perspective is one based on history. I was born in 1967, so for me, hindsite is 20/20. Did people at the time feel they needed a disclaimer to proclaim their support for the CRA?

(I may not be around tonite to respond, but I will be here tomorrow during the day)

I hope this all makes sense.
