4. Wow. I went to Ta-Nehisi Coates post at The Atlantic that TPM linked to
and the comments section has some amazing stories. The Past Ain't Even the Past
It gives you a jolt to realize how close to history we really are.

6. So true...
My Dad has passed down conversations to me he had with his grand-dad about his grand-dad's grand-dad. That would be my g-g-g-grandfather who was born during the Revolutionary War. My Dad was quite young at the time, but has remembered an incredible amount of information.
