I feel like a stranger here.
It's very strange...I was a "regular" three or so years ago and then things took me away and the DU site got a little tough for me. There was a lot of arguing and there were times that I felt it was almost dangerous to go on GD...I don't mean physically dangerous by any means... I just mean that you never knew when you would be attacked verbally. Anyway, I have lurked from time to time and things seem very different now, safer, easier to express an opinion without being pilloried. The Lounge is still as quirky as I remember and it seems welcoming as usual. MATCOM is still here and a few (very few) other oldies. So, here I am for a second time around...I'm a lawyer from Boston who threw it all up and moved to the woods in southern NH. I have never looked back but I'm still involved in political things up here and I'm still interested in what folks have to say and think. I'm writing this because it ocurred to me that you guys might think I was a freeper in disguise. I'm not and I look forward to checking in from time to time.

1. Pfft. What a stupid opinion. Might just as well have let Hitler have Europe, I guess.
Then we could have guaranteed no education for minorities.

:eyes:










Welcome back Raven!! :hi: I've missed you!! Good to see your name up on the screen again.

:bounce: :woohoo: :party: :beer:

19. Thank you for not using the sarcasm tag
Rabrrr, sometimes you just bring a tear of joy to my eye. And then another tear of joy to the other eye.

4. Hi Raven....I remember you.
Welcome back.

I'm an old-timer and I am still here. I just don't post much in GD or GD :P because it's scary in those places. And the primary wars are getting underway again.

:scared:

Obama supporter from Illinois here.

6. I remember you. Your boy is still making quite a name for himself.
And I remember when you left the city for the bucolic pleasures of NH.
Nice to have you back.
:hi:

9. Welcome back
I don't know where you got the idea that it's any safer or easier to express an opinion without being pilloried (you must have missed some of the recent flamefests) but the Lounge is certainly the same old Lounge. :hi:

21. Raven! So glad to hear from you again.
Been thinking of you lately and hoping all was well.

For those who weren't here when this DUer was a regular, trust! This is a very fine human being with enough liberal credentials to put the rest of us to shame.

How's the critters, Raven? Fur family OK?

So very happy to see you drop by.

hm

22. Welcome back, Raven.
I know how you feel. I rarely post here anymore, but it's nice to see an "old" face around! Say hi to your son for me.
