A book I've never seen mentioned on Mudcat so I thought it worth bringing to your attention.

The Washington Post also had an article earlier this year -- that's where I first heard about "The Green Book"

Fascinating. And sickening to think that it was needed - and so recently.

That links to a good number of the books. To view, go towards the bottom of the page and click the thing that represents an open book. That will allow one to view the complete book by clicking on the pages. Thanks again, Stevebury.

Listening to a B. Obama clip on today's radio. It is astounding how much the president sounds like the American Comedian "Bill Cosby".
