  •  Great. I was talking to my conservative (4+ / 0-)

    51 yr old brother and my neighbors across the street before the election.  They all gave the reason they weren't voting for Obama was because of Rev. Wright.  I was flabbergasted and tried to explain to them what that was all about but they went glassy eyed.  That was unbelievable what they made that out to be.

      ...had a wonderful saying about people like your brother and neighbors:

      "Freedom to choose means we can choose to be educated or willfully ignorant."

      With that, she'd drill us for another few hours on our lessons (under the threat of no dinner until we did)!

      I guess I didn't have a lot of choice for the first 18 years...and now I'm kind of glad I didn't! ;-)
