  •  These FL dirty tricks remind me of Edison records! (none)
    Hello from Maine -

    "Caging lists" - intimidating minority voters ... all in our time.

    While I enjoy collecting Edison cylinder and disc records, Thomas A. was "out of touch" with reality, even in his own time, as rivals Victor, Brunswick and Columbia records all recorded people like Duke Ellington and Ethel Waters.

    Typical Edison joke:
    (Collins & Harlan recording)
    "You smell just like a rose."
    "Ah does? What kind of rose is 'dat?"
    "Why, the Ne-groes!"
    (Duet laughs and returns to the catchy song)

    Reading about some of these FL tactics sure reminds me of the music scene 80+ years, ago.

    I hope FL goes for Kerry, in a big way!

    Regards,
    Douglas Henderson
