Booker T. Washington said . . .

"There is another class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs -- partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs....There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who do not want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public."

Could he possibly have had premonitions about people such as Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton?

Passion

Yesterday, we all saw Passion of the Christ. What a movie!! On it's own, it was a fantastic movie of man's treatment of what he fears. To the Christian, it was a VERY realistic portayal of the stories in the Bible. If you haven't seen it, I recommend you do, if you're not 'squeamish'.

Just a quick catchup

For ANYONE who's reading this, sorry for the gap in time, but I told you it would happen. I only have a few minutes, as I just popped into the local library to check out a book.
I discovered a blind spot in my eye last week. The eye doctor says it's a 'histo-lesion' caused by a condition called "presumed occular histoplasmosis syndrome". That's a fungus that most in this region of the USA have. It's transmitted by bird droppings, and our environment is ideal for its growth, spread, and survival. Anyway, the fungus isn't so much the problem as is the bodies way of dealing with it. The fungus can cause an inflamation in the retina, and that causes a part of the retina to be destroyed. I'm pretty lucky that it's in my periphery, where it's just an annoyance, vs being in the center, where it would REALLY affect my vision.
More, later.
