Anyone else here curious if Jon Huntsman will Toss his Hat in to the Ring?

Dear Governor Huntsman,

This letter comes at a hard time for our nation, a time of abundant suspicion and lasting cynicism. Trusting in our politicians has become a punch-lineóa joke that echoes around the campaign trail. Being a statesman seems to become harder each and every day.

We know you know this.

Before the founding of this republic, American leaders stood up and fought an empire. Our nationís Fathers came togetheródespite differences in opinion. The common bond of liberty and individualism united the 13 colonies. Benjamin Franklin declared that "we must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately." Those were grave times.

President Lincoln held the Republic together during a civil war that tested whether a "nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal" could, in fact, endure and survive. Those were grave times. Grave times call for great leaders.

We still believe in the principles of our nationís founders.

We still believe in the words of President Lincoln.

We want to believe in President Huntsman.

We have faith in you, Governor. We have faith because the call to serve transcends politics and horse races. We know that Jon2016.com and your campaign for President will be hard, and that they might even fail. These campaigns may have false starts, but they will have real hope and real promise. These campaigns are working for something greater than any one individual.

The American people are asking for something greater than a poll or punditís choice. They are asking a patriot to act on his call to duty. You said it best, Governor:

"I will always put my country first."

Dear Receptionist,

If a patient calls in stating they are in pain, your ONLY reply should be:

I am sorry you are experiencing pain. Please come in now and, we will be glad to have the doctor see you as soon as possible.

Young, Black and Victorian: Wonderful photographs of Victorian women of color

Here are some photographs of Victorian women of color that date from 1860 to 1901. Unfortunately, a lot of these photographs have no names attached to the women posed in the photographs.
Photos of Women of Color from this era are hard to come by, especially ďfamilyĒ photographs.
A couple of these photos were taken when there was still slavery in the United States.
