it's about time.  time to go back to competing on a level field.  win or lose on your own.  if you can't cut it, you don't get the promotion.  white, black, green!!!  and STOP WHINING!
One could not learn history from architecture any more than one could learn it from books. Statues, inscriptions, memorial stones, the names of streets ? anything that might throw light upon the past had been systematically altered. (1.8.85)

Also true of the Appellate Judge who got overturned in this case. :D
The opinion of 10,000 men is of no value if none of them know anything about the subject.

Yes! (fist pumping in the air!!)  Awesome, awesome, awesome.  This case has had me very upset, and the thought of Sodawhatever getting into the Supreme Court after her assinine 'logic' (really racist rhetoric) sickened me.  Perhaps the tide is shifting a bit more than I thought.
