I see I am behind in this thread also... I will get to it soon.

But first I have this:

Quote:
Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
Each reader may recognize the above as the Gettysburg Address by one of our greatest president yet, Abraham Lincoln delivered it on the 19th Nov., 1863.

That was 153 years ago today. Sadly in all of this time it has a bit longer to go to become reality in it's complete form.

I know when it this happens, this country will have taken a large step forward.
