...the Government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens in giving it on all occasions their effectual support. Geo. Washington Feb. 22, 1732


Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.
Robert Kennedy, South Africa 1966.

Found For Friday


A woman takes her lover home during the day while her husband is at work.

Her nine-year-old son comes home unexpectedly, sees them, and hides in the bedroom closet to watch.

The woman’s husband also arrives home unexpectedly.  She rushes her lover into the closet, not realizing that the little boy is already in there.

The little boy says, “Dark in here.”

“Yes, it is,” replies the man.

Boy:  “I have a baseball.”

Man:  “That’s nice.”

Boy:  “Want to buy it?”

Man:  “No, thanks.”

Boy:  “My dad’s outside, and I can yell.”

Man:  “Oh, all right.  How much?”

Boy:  “$250.”

Man:  “Sold.”

A couple of weeks later it happens again, and the boy and the lover find themselves together in the closet once more.

Boy:  “Dark in here.”

Man:  “Yes, it is.”

Boy:  “I have a baseball glove.”

The man remembers the last time, and says, “Oh, for Pete’s sake!  How much this time?”

Boy:  “$750.”

Man:  “Sold.”

A few days later the boy’s dad says, “C’mon, son!  Grab your glove and let’s go out in the yard and play some catch!”

“Well, Dad,” says the boy, “I’d really like to, but I sold my glove and my baseball too.”

“Why would you do that?” asks the dad.  “How much did you get for them?”

$1,000,” replies the boy.

“That’s terrible!” says the dad.  “How could you charge your little friends so much?  That’s WAY more than they’re worth!  You put on your shoes and come with me, young man!  I’m taking you to church for confession!”

They get to the church, and the father marches the boy to a confessional, pushes him inside, and closes the door.

“Dark in here,” says the boy.


“Don’t start that shit with me again!” comes the voice from the other side of the screen.  “You’re in my closet now!”
