Geraldine You Go Girl!

Many of you may remember that I once got into an argument over Geraldine Ferraro back in the day when she ran for VP and I was a Democrat. Today, Geraldine seems to be in hot water, but I still like her - not because she supports Hillary, but because she won't back down (I hope). I love it that she is saying what others are thinking:

Any time anybody does anything that in any way pulls this campaign down and says let's address reality and the problems we're facing in this world, you're accused of being racist, so you have to shut up," she told the (Torrance, California) Daily Breeze. "Racism works in two different directions. I really think they're attacking me because I'm white. How's that?"

Personally, I don't think she is being attacked for being "white," but she is being attacked because she is right.

Sorry about the typo; kind of makes the argument sound silly:)

It's probably not proper blog etiquette to hijack someone's blog, but I knew most of the blogs that I read and comment on also read your blog so I thought if you'd loan me just a second Lou...

I just wanted to say "goodbye for awhile". I don't keep my own blog, I just read and comment on others. Therein lies my problem, I've really been spending a lot of time at my computer that I need to be spending elsewhere. a good friend of ours says from the pulpit "I'm not mad at anybody". I'm just taking a little blog sabbatical.

See ya'
