Ron Paul and Liberty

Some years ago I was transcribing recorded oral histories of people who had taken part in sit-ins to protest segregated lunch counters in Dallas. The story that hit me the hardest was the one of a teenage girl who endured cigarrette burns to her body (an attempt by the owner to get the "nigger" out of his restaurant.) When she gave the oral history - some 30 years later - she till had those burns on her body.

Now there is a story in which Ron Paul and I can both find a heroe - its just not the same person.
