I want to ask a question, and it comes from an honest and naive place.

I just read this post http://www.democraticunderground.com/10024761241

I agree with the OP, this is a right. (it's a shame that a right needs to be legislated) but it popped a question into my head. Blu

Does DU have any AA members that experienced/lived through the era prior to the civil rights act being signed into law?

I would love to read the perspective of what people thought after it was signed into law. Did supporters of the Civil Rights Act(s) ever feel like they had to apologize for what it did? Did the CRA have the same kind of reaction that the ACA is having?

It's my opinion that the CRA could have gone farther, but my perspective is one based on history. I was born in 1967, so for me, hindsite is 20/20. Did people at the time feel they needed a disclaimer to proclaim their support for the CRA?

(I may not be around tonite to respond, but I will be here tomorrow during the day)

I hope this all makes sense.

When was the last time someone came to the lounge for a hug?

Ya know, this sorta scenario: Raine pushed the doors open and said 'I need a hug. Can I get a hug? ' (and then Raine hugged a person in the lounge.)

I think a hug thread would be awesome.

so here:

and here:

9-alarm fire; Beacon street in Boston.

live video.
Scanner feed.
Sending prayers to the firefighters and the people in the building. Boston has to be windy as hell today after yesterdays storm.

Could we have the in Memoriam post

link in the Announcements group pinned?

It's a bit difficult to find. In order to get to this, http://www.democraticunderground.com/inmemoriam, it seems people need to know this http://www.democraticunderground.com/10133577

Maybe a pinned post might help people find the memoriam page. I mention this because of this post in the lounge:


Game over. The Boss covered the Bee Gees:

(Disclaimer: I am an unabashed fan of both the Bee Gees and Springsteen for different reasons)

Bruce wins... I might even get my hubby to listen to this version!

Sitting here on a bean bag chair. It's sorta slippery and now I am hungry:

In the name of the father....

Easter 2014:

April 20....

I Can't wait!

That is all.

I just have to share this great news from my family!

Via my Brother in Law (he shared it on the Book of faces) He's the Arlington Admirals Hockey teams coach. (For my fellow NY'rs, they are in Lagrangeville, NY)

I am please to announce that the Arlington Admirals have won the States for the Varsity High School Hockey Division and we are on our way to the USA Hockey Nationals in Omaha, Nebraska. I'm proud of all the players who put the hard work in to achieve a remarkable goal. We have more work to do, but I'm confident we are up for the challenge.

SO proud of the BIL and his kids!
