  •  My mom was born in 1919 (4+ / 0-)

    She lived to see Obama elected and she was happy about it I think, she said she was but with mom you never knew.

     She was a Democrat and given the fact that my sister had married a black man and integrated our family one would think mom had shaken out her racist leanings long ago.

    But, again...with mom you never quite knew where she really stood.

    My step dad was born in 1911, he was much more to me than my real father and I believe, no I know that he would have been proud and thrilled. He and my late bro in law were great friends, Ross didn't have a racist bone in his body.

    And daddy won't you take me back to Muhlenberg County Down by the Green River where Paradise lay. Well, I'm sorry my son, but you're too late in asking Mister Peabody's coal train has hauled it away. John Prine
