Happy Juneteenth Day To Us All

Today is Juneteenth Day -- the date of June 19 is an official holiday in some states celebrating the day in 1865 when ALL slaves in ALL States in the United States were finally freed.

Then The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was passed on June 19, 1964.

The wheels of Justice do turn exceeding slow. but Thanks Goodness, they DO turn.

I read a piece in Slate titled:

The article, subtitled: A very silly man gives a very sinister speech, was written by Christopher Hitchens.

In the words of Laugh-In's Arte Johnson --

"Veddy interesting... but schtupid."

More to come later . . . maybe.
