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?

Holiday World pictures

As I mentioned in a post yesterday, we went to Holiday World and Splashin' Safari in Santa Claus, Indiana. We had a great time. I didn't get to take as many pictures as I would have liked, but here's what I shot.

As with most of the pictures on my blog, you can click on them for a larger version.

Interesting day.

Ratte, one of Jessica's rats, was sleeping on a high-shelf in his cage. He rolled over, fell off the ledge, and landed in his empty food bowl. He just slept there for about 15 minutes more, as if nothing happened.

It was also 'haircut' day for Len. About once a year or so, I get a hair cut.
