Friday Free For All: Democratic Racism Edition

(one of the most vile posters I've ever seen)

Today, in 1866, the Democratic government in New Orleans ordered a raid on a racially integrated meeting of the Republican Party. 40 people were killed and 150 were injured.


Reading this short blurb at reminded me of my blog post from a month back called "Why I'm a Republican" which you can read here.

Western States 100 Mile Endurance Run

10 days ago, my sister Allyson ran a 100-mile race. Her first, and hopefully last 100-mile race. It was a thrilling, crazy, exhilirating, dangerous, salty, dusty, grimy, incredible, beautiful 28 hours, 40 minutes of all our lives. Allyson was really incredible. The video I made in her honor says it all.
