    As I posted in another thread, how well did all that rioting and looting and arson work out for Detroit, Watts, and Oak Park?!

    And the news guys had him on just to tell him what big Al said. No one listens.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.

    Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.

    Sadly, Booker T. Washington is held in very low regard by many blacks (among those that have heard of him). Washington was responding to the likes of W. E. B. DuBois, who was the ancestor of modern victimology among blacks.

    Up From Slavery is a very worthwhile read (and I believe it is the source of the quote from Washington, or the book quotes it from a speech given by Washington).
