"I think Ron's latest response is perfectly clear and makes sense in light of the genteel scolding delivered by greenheron. It seems particularly ironic to me that a white person is taking another white person to task about how to speak/not…"

alsoknownas commented on Kage Alan's blog post The Real TMI
"I think of this as "The Back of the Bus Syndrome". I noted decades ago how much strangers will tell each other when they know the familiarity will end after one of them gets off the bus. Good account of a strange human trait."

"Well...only the author would know.  I think in some regard we have fooled ourselves into believing our words merit permanence. There have been very good writers come and go. Many of them had posts that had hit the 'top of the chart"…"

"I don't know what to think Rodney. I do know that I cannot watch however. I'm really tired of the extremes of white culture. I find it dispiriting at best and boring far too often. There is a newspaper setting on my stand next to me.…"

"I'm partial to a four-in-hand knot. It should be called the "Hurry Up we're Leaving for Church in Five Minutes" knot. A simple tug at the knot and you've got the dimple."

It's been years since I sat around with this friend from the past, but the message is current :

Sitting outside on Sunday afternoon by a small chimnea fire with one of my guitars I heard the news about a friend. He has never lived a careful life it seems to me when it comes to certain things we all know don't have the best endings. This was one of many instances when time came close to catching up for good.
