When I was at LSU there were 15-20 Tiger football players in advanced ROTC, which meant they and me were already E-3s. Ronnie Estay was a cadet colonel. ABC Sports even did a piece about it during that '70 football season. Nobody liked the draft, nobody wanted to go to Vietnam, but most guys did t...

You do realize that not all people who grew up in the south in the 50's/60's saw the abuse of black people, correct? You do realize that not all towns in the south were like that, correct? You do realize that not all Southerners were like that, correct?
