    How you doin' today Pol?
    I am doing very well, I hope you are, too! Good a good night's sleep, which I sorely needed! I have such a list of things to get done today that I think I'll use the dartboard and whatever the dart lands on gets handled. It will doubtless be the one thing I'd rather not do, but that's usually the way it goes. I'll let Lady Luck decide, but I sure hope she's not feeling ornery today!

    According to Biden, think three words: background check. I'm seriously concerned about all the hatred you harbor toward nature, too. SPLC is going to have a balloon on their hate map for you.

Or would they be agreeing that it was the right thing to do?

    Good morning, SMTA!

    LOL! I figured "why not?" It's working out so well for them! : However, I really do think they cheat, and do what they want to do instead. Maybe that's why things are such a mess! No other explanation makes sense!

    Smells like a hoax to me. Should be plenty of witnesses on a subway. Wouldn't surprise me if he did say something along the lines of "should have killed all of you", but I suspect the "kill you" part was made up.

    Hate is an equal opportunity emotion. Judging the entire person because of a single attribute or belief, or lack thereof, is pretty shallow. Better to learn all you can about them, and hate the whole enchilada. That's what I always say. Course, I never say that. I always say never to listen to someone who always saying something.

    : You're one major reason I enjoy this site! Bubba is such a perfectionist, isn't he? : We'll have to talk to him about that!

    Well, it's dartboard time. ...sigh...: See you all later...Have a good time today. I suspect I'll be wishing I was here, believe me!

    Thought you might be interested in this:


    Yusef Hawkins (also spelled as Yusuf Hawkins, March 19, 1973 August 23, 1989) was a 16-year-old African American who was shot to death on August 23, 1989 inBensonhurst, a predominantly working-class neighborhood in the New York City borough of Brooklyn. Hawkins and three friends were attacked by a crowd of 10 to 30 white youths, with at least seven of them wielding baseball bats. One, armed with a handgun, shot Hawkins twice in the chest, killing him.[1][2]
    Hawkins had gone to Bensonhurst that night with three friends to inquire about a used 1982 Pontiac automobile that was for sale. The group's attackers had been lying in wait for black or Hispanic youths they believed were coming to fight for a Latino girl neighbor one of the attackers was dating. She was yelling from a window that 'My Black friends are coming to kick your asses". Hawkins and his friends walked onto block at that time. Police later said Hawkins was not involved with the girl.[1]
    Hawkins' death was the third killing of a black man by white mobs in New York City during the 1980s; the other two victims were Willie Turks, who was killed on June 22, 1982 in Brooklyn, and Michael Griffith, who was killed in Queens on December 20, 1986. The incident uncorked a torrent of racial tension in and around New York City in the ensuing days and weeks, culminating in a protest march through the neighborhood led by the Reverend Al Sharpton.
