Death of a Force
« on: May 15, 2007, 02:45:20 PM »
Jerry Falwell has died according to AP.  regardless of your religious background  or political views, he was a force that gave voice to what had been a silent group.  He made it ok to talk about conservative views and to put moral beliefs into practice.  long ago, when i had a momentary laps of sense, i had considered attending liberty university for a law degree. the lapse of sense, btw, had to do with the law degree, not the school  :-).   there was no other place at the time where a conservative could get an education in something other than ACLU law.

anyway....i thought it was a death worth noting.
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)
