    Isabel Wilkerson tells the story of a century-long migration of millions of African Americand from the South. One of the best books pubLished in 2010. Read it (cry through it) as I have and hear AA voices tell what Jim Crow was like. If you don't know already what Barbour is up to, you should by time you get to page 100.

    He and the Rethugs and Teabaggers are racist SOBs. Jim Crow is being reinvented as James Crow.

    There are just 10 kinds of people; those who know binary and those who don't.

      Jim Crow is being reinvented as James Crow.

      And don't forget to include all those other Southern-fried bastards who have shed (or never acquired) the accent: KKKarl Rove, James Baker, G.W. "Pork Rind" Bush, Lindsay Graham, "James" DeMint, Bob Cuccinelli, that Virginia delegate "Billy" Bob Marshall who wants to ban gays from the VA National Guard, Nathan "Real" Deal, "Diaper" Dave Vitter, Mark Foley, Louis "Golem" Gohmert, Joe "Oil Kiss" Barton, George "Maccaca" Allen, just to name a few.

      "James" Crow indeed!

      Shalom.
