    it will have done well if it can say, "We opened wide the door to the examination of racism. We did it boldly because the time had come...again, in our lifetimes."

    Then away out in the woods I heard that kind of a sound that a ghost makes when it wants to tell about something that's on its mind and can't make itself understood, and so can't rest easy in its grave, and has to go about that way every night grieving.

    Thank you, NLinStPaul, for a sensitive and well spoken piece. It has not escaped my notice the number of diaries recently on the subject.

    Today we have a Black President who stands head and shoulders above his predecessors in character and integrity.

    What we thought was true, (that this country was "ready" for a Black President"), was not.

    And here we bloody well are, yet again.

    May God have mercy on us all.
