Funny, most of the white dudes I see calling for stronger gun control laws are fathers, husbands and friends of women senselessly killed by gun violence. I wonder how Erin will feel when her friend wakes up scared late one nite by a noise grabs her gun and shoots, killing her sister who she forgot had drove in late and was staying over. Erin watches too much Fox. NO one is proposing taking away hand guns period, in fact one of the issues in many states is keeping men who stalk and abuse women from buying a gun, along with people on the terrorist watch list, and crazy people. ALL issues that the NRA and Republican's in congress have squashed. You won't hear about Scotland on Fox, but google it. Most police don't carry guns there and the number of people killed by the police or policemen killed in the last 5 or so years is .....ZERO. So boys and girls, people with out guns don't kill people with guns.
In 2015, 1,136 Americans were killed by police. 301 of those were black. Why don't you care about the other 835?
Great read. I think Trump and his views are ruining lots of relationships.
@Tiffene Love Screenwriter Thank you so much. The older you get the easier it is to just keep it 100 with folks....smile Thank you for reading!
@Schan I thought it best to make the break up public so there was no room for any confusion that we would continue as an item....lol Thank you for reading!
I adore you Mr Easley, lol. Because you are unapologetically honest and I love that. And I love the article, a good read.
Intriguing, riveting, poignant. A great choice to make this break up public. ~Schan
@drew.kinney.14 that is high praise coming from such a learned educator as yourself. Thank you for reading and sharing your thoughts.
@thomas cooper I agree but it is still very disturbing how many folks are so openly supporting Trump and his ideology. Thank you for reading.
It would nice to leave Trump in 2015.
You are one funny dude. I love how you mix satire with biting substance. I'd be willing to be most casual loafing readers are likely confused.
It great being in the inside of your wit, watching the initiated bang their heads against the wall.
Prof Cooper, you are right about that wreath!
What can I say. I think Donald Trump would place a wreath on Adolph Hitler's grave (if he could find it) just for the publicity. But I can honestly say, I never liked the guy. He does not share my values about marriage and family and religion and justice and decency and honesty and race . . . .
@LindaPeace Thank you so much for all of your historical love and support! : )
Thank you for posting this memory. For the longest time I had been trying to remember who opened the concert. I had a "progressive country" radio show with my buddy Charlie at the time on the 5-watt WDAV. We were at the concert with some other guys from Davidson-I remember the dogs. I also remember Jerry Jeff came out and watched Tom Wait's set and my impression was that JJ was thinking this Waits guy is even more screwed up than I am.
I am very impressed with your site and as always love to hear/read your "stories." Congratulations Cuz!!! Linda P.S. How did you get a "dislike thumbs down" button when facebook is still only talking about it? LOL
@TMarshall Thank you for reading and always sharing your point of view!
As usual a great article Charles.
@Schan thank you for reading and sharing your thoughts!
Wow...What a great article and poignant perspective. Thank you for making me take a good hard look AGAIN about the state of our communities. ~ Schan
@Cole Butler Very well put. I agree the attendance does not reflect the commitment of those who believe in the cause. Thank you for reading and sharing your thoughts!
For sure! Im not surprised that the minister had to buy his own airtime either. Its a mess and even though attendence was less than ut has been the justice or else movement is still going. Im just glad that not everyone or just anyones hands are in it though. We dont need people down for the cause and then no one knows why they are there, what their stance is, and what they are doing with the money for said cause.
