    Higher pay for grunts is a good idea too....

    Yellow Footprints

    48-years ago today I stood on the yellow footprints. Sometimes it doesn't seem that long ago. Then I think of all the adventures since, and I wonder why I'm still alive. :confused:

    Anything the Southern Poverty Law Center says is very suspect. They have been incredibly biased toward conservative groups for many years. I see SPLC and I immediately ignore what they say.

    I can't even guess how many times I heard, "That's not mine!" or some variation while I was a cop. Though this one was a little bit unusual.

    I believe that every currently living person who was a black slave prior to 1865 should get $10 million. But you have to prove you were a slave then. If not, no claim. No claims of reincarnation...
