[quote]It's grossly overstated. [/quote]Grossly overstated by whom? The people being victimized by it? Oh, sorry massa. I'll try not to complain so much next time.

[quote]Sorry, but it really gets to be annoying when conservatives blame everything on the media [/quote] When I was growing up I used to hear old white racists say the same thing about how tired they were about hearing blacks complain all the time.

[quote]I don't believe that. If Obama can get elected Carson can too. [/quote]I disagree. The difference between the two in terms of electability is that Obama had the media carrying water for him from day one. Carson would have the media attacking him from day one. They would twist, belittle, an...

Any fans of The Crusaders here? RIP Wayne Henderson - L.A.
one of the founding members of the jazz band The Crusaders. Damn they were good. Their 1974 album "Scratch," recorded live at The Roxy, with Larry Carlton on guitar, is still one of my all-time favorite records. Henderson died last week at the age of 74. [link=(https://www.youtube.com/watch?...

As a 17 year old Neil Tyson had a one-on-one meeting with Dr. Carl Sagan at Cornell. He ate lunch at Sagan's house, and Sagan even offered to let him spend the night in his home since it was snowing outside. Yeah, Tyson really had it rough. :rolleyes:...
