Assuming this madness will ever end, accept the possibility that it will not end with ease or well. Our liberty is a stake .

I was talking with a friend this weekend about Ferguson and wondering if this town recovered, and re-built after the fires and looting. I thought you would be the best one to ask.

Yes, Ferguson has rebuild the burn structures. Some of the businesses did not return.

As for the city itself, it has not really recovered. And it likely won't be the sleepy bedroom family community that it once was. The police force is mostly white, the new mayor is black. The police are hampered in doing their work. The Floyd incident hasn't helped. Palpable tension is there.

I have several friends and relatives there. They are still uneasy.

We will not visit Ferguson unarmed. It will soon resemble Kinloch which was a racist black community ( no whites allowed) that eventually died under it's years of corruption and hate towards it's neighbors in Berkeley and Ferguson.

This is, of course, my opinion of the status there. Government data may show a different perspective.
