I am truly sorry to hop back in but it is SO HARD being a wealthy, superior intellectual (and I must say truly attractive) from a southern family who has lived on the same land for over 200 years. Believe me when I say that times can be very trying especially in these hard economic times. Of course the charities we sponsor suffer from lack of funds but this CANNOT be helped. Unfortunately we had to cut corners SOMEWHERE. We DID employ lots of unfortunates on the farm and the logging operations but times are hard and even we had to scale back on the labor force (except for the servant staff). Oh, dear me, how I rattle on. This thread is about the young folks and their choice of who attends their proms. Again I say that they should have the choice. We went so far as to give our children private proms here on the homestead. They were such handsome boys and lovely girls. I hope they can end up where they want to be. I must admit that my country club is full of very intolerant ol' boys who close ranks from undesirable outsiders.
Bobert...you are right, integration will never totally wash in the south even though the gents of congress declare it so.
Mick...I hope you can convince someone to duke it out with you. It really might be fun if you can find some on your "level". TaTa
Rizzo...I do believe I like you.
