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?

Class "B" CDL

I FINALLY passed my CDL tests . . . They say "Third time's a charm", and I guess it was. Of course, the tests are $150 a shot, whether you pass.

I hope I'm a little more 'marketable', now.

Chinese food

Had lunch at a Chinese place yesterday, one we frequent. I was eating my usual 'favorite', General Tso's chicken, and cooked right in there was a nice, big roach. It's a resturant. It happens. The rest of the meal was good, though.

And, it ended up being free.

I'm sitting here at one of my local McDonald's grabbing a bite to eat. Shortly after I sat down, a LARGE group of highschool girls came in. I expect they're on a field trip, and popped in here for lunch.

Well, it WAS quite, for a while.

What a shame . . .

You want to know what I think is a shame? There seems to be no more adventures. It's just not possible to be a ranger, or to wander the roads and the woods, seeking life as it comes at you. I think this comes mostly from one's decision in immaturity to settle down. It's a shame that more people, as they're 'trying their wings', don't get out and see more of the world. Of course, the world is a different place, now.
