I am finishing the reading of “ To Kill a Mocking Bird”,  and I turned down the page at a paragraph that struck me as relevant now as when Harper Lee wrote it. Here it is..” when ever a white man does that* to a black man, no matter who he is, how rich he is,or how fine a family he comes from, that white man is trash.” 

*a square deal ( authors words)

That just brought my thoughts to the White House. Back when I was growing up in the south, you couldn’t get any lower than being called trash. I can think of a good example of a  white trash figure .

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
