Much ado...

This post has ruffled a few feathers. I have great affection for both the kids in question, having seen them grow up from wee little ones. At any rate, there was no intent to make anything an issue, just like the time I posted this. If I can be proud about something, then I can be alarmed by something else.

Why am I not surprised! Let it be known that I agree with you.

Old prejudices cannot be wiped out quickly. I believe that change will come sooner than later. However the future generations may have a different set of prejudices.

Cyco: Thanks.

Materialmom: I guess you are right. We rebelled against the system, the next generation may rebel for it!

Crazybugga: Well, I just seem to have the knack. Nice picture btw ;)

I'd be upset too, because you've abused the word fascist.

Fascism has more to do with government, totalitarianism, lack of democracy, etc.

Xenophobia, parochialism, or something along those lines is what your young cousin exhibited, not fascism.

hey if you're going to moderate comments anyway, can you enable anonymous comments? The only reason I don't comment on your posts more often is that I hate to stay logged on to google...

you're the boss. i used the term more in the sense of the bigotry involved. in my defense, i point to wikipedia.

As for the comments, I did for some reason which I cant recall at present :)
