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?

Due to circumstances (mostly) beyond our control,  we had to buy a work truck. We bought a 2007 Ford Explorer 4X4. Now,  by this time of year,  we usually have a fair amount of snow, and we were looking forward to a bit of fun testing the truck's capabilities.  But,  we've pretty much had rain.  I'm going to be a bit disappointed if we don't get some substantial snowfall,  this winter . . .


It was a wonderful Christmas. We got all of the family together, which hasn't happened in quite a while.
