1. Did you ever ask yourself why some of the greatest in our society

have risen from the lowest ranks of the society? Mother Jones? Paul Robeson, Du Bois, Frederick Douglas, Granny D? How many others can you name? If we had the sense and forethought to provide everyone with equal opportunity we could be centuries ahead of where we are now. This country makes me so sad as to what we have accomplished as opposed to what we were capable of.
I need a break for a few minutes to regain my composure to address the next outrageous post in a somewhat sane fashion. Otherwise I'll go off on a Malloy 3 hour rant about all the things that are wrong.

Peace Out BBRS
