As a "semi-rail-nut," I'm all for it.  I think the biggest obstacle is getting Amtrak off private rails.  This is why most of their service outside the Northeast is late most of the time.  I think if people can get to the same place in the same time it would take to drive, then they might come around to the niceties of rail travel.

My own personal thing would be for them to have a route that covers every major Interstate Highway.

there was a sit-in at a food counter in durham before the one in greensboro.

Several other places too.  Ironically, WINSTON-Salem actually de-segregated their counters before Greensboro.

February was selected as Black history month because it is the month Frederick Douglas and Abraham Lincoln were born.

Small correction: it started out as Negro History WEEK, which fell between those two's birthdates.

Yes.  I messed it up!  Funny, NOW, 1000 years later, that lady tries to get with me. ALWAYS reminds me of the goof up.

:shrug: Are their any other registered Independents with Moderate Political ideas on this board...   :shrug:

These debates seem to always be between Liberals and Conservatives, I am beginning to feel left out of the discussions at times...   :'(

I was, but became a Republican moderate for 'primary voting purposes.

Simple --some want to be ACCEPTED and not EMPOWERED. Some blacks here (not all) act like blacks from the late 1950's.

In TEXAS?!!!! :o

I also recall the GOP being "afraid" of a reasonable compromise, which would have added 2 more House seats.  One for DC, and the other for Utah.

What's wrong with that compromise?

Graduation. For the most part, I hated undergrad.

I'm glad someone started this thread since I couldn't get to the computer when I wanted.

Sounds like a GREAT idea to me.

The Hap'nin

The JAM of all time


I agree.  I have been saying this since I was a young pup ion High School.  I have always said that any man trying to be a long term "friend" is wating a female out, or is gay.  Harvey made it nice, and it even talking about dating . . .put it out there that you want to get busy, and see if that dude don't jump at the chance. 

Even today, I don't have ANY female friends . . .and I''m not counting co-workers becasue we gotta talk.  I have known some cool females that had their stuff together. Bad.  but I don't want to have any long term interaction.  My wife is naive. . . .I did tell her thought, that if she ever see me talking to anybody at length in a friendly tone . . . we have been together at some time. 

I have to disagree with this one, though I do understand the stereotype.  Since I was an Education major, I've been around a mostly female environment most of my adult life.  Even my WIFE acknowledges that I have a lot female friends.  A couple of posters on here can tell you the "hook-up" I had when I first started grad school. ;) :-X :angel:

Married notwithstanding-

A.  I ALMOST understand women-bout as close as a brotha can get
B.  I have sense enough to know that I can't  and shouldn't screw every
     woman I see or want.( course I guess that explains part of the
C.  A brotha can LEARN SO MUCH when you ain't trying to get in their pants

D.   :-X
