  1. Do not go gentle into that good night,

    Old age should burn and rage at close of day;

    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

    Though wise men at their end know dark is right,

    Because their words had forked no lightning they

    Do not go gentle into that good night.

    Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright

    Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,

    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

    Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,

    And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,

    Do not go gentle into that good night.

    Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight

    Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,

    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

    And you, my father, there on the sad height,

    Curse, bless me now with your fierce tears, I pray.

    Do not go gentle into that good night.

    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.


  2. I don't know a single person who is offended by the use of "blacks". It is more accurate than African American, because many blacks do not consider themselves from Africa (Jamaicans, Dominicans, etc).

    But as Peter Tosh correctly pointed out..."no matter where you come from, as long as you're a black man, you are an African." :happy:


  3. Zogby published a poll asking who would you vote for if they were on the ballot. Christie won with 27% followed by Romney at 17%, Palin at 16%, and Huckabee at 14%. Nobody else was over 5%.

    Christie was also the only one that beat President Obama head to head in the poll from the GOP side. He won 43-40. Romney tied President Obama at 41 each.

    Christie had an impressive margin with independents. He holds a 42-29 lead over the President with independents.

    Christie is pretty adamant about not running. For whatever reason I tend to believe him.

    Just tossing it out there. I know polls mean nothing right now.

    I believe Christie when he says he won't run. His temper gets him into trouble too often.


  4. She has not been harmed financially by the University. This was an honorary situation. They are free to remove the honor. Don't think the University's legal team didn't go through everything necessary to insure they weren't on some sort of legal tightrope here. The University does not want to honor someone that is under the impression that "zionists" control the globe. The irony of these "clarifications" being made at a symposium designed to decry stereotypes is most unfortunate.
