    Arte Johnson. The article missed that he went to the U of I. I met him at a frat party there back in the day. Seemed like a decent guy.

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say that his background is exactly why he acts the way he holds the beliefs/takes the stands he does today. He probably had a fairly non-oppressed background but as he progressed in football to college and the NFL, he got to know teammates who had the same skin color, but very different, and very oppressed backgrounds. People who grew up oppressed don't really know any different; people who grew up non-oppressed don't know any different. It's the people who grew up one way and then develop intimate relationships with people who grew up a different way that often take up mantles such as these because they KNOW things can and should be different.

    Hope you enjoy four more years of Trump.
    Keep forgetting about those secondary sneaker exchanges. Buy at $100, sell at $1,000.

    Four more years puts him at 2023. Is he not going to make it to the end of his second term? What do you know? Death, resignation, impeachment? Spill it!

    I usually agree with most of what you write, but you are just plain wrong here.

    If I saw her in person I'd demand that she immediately take that off!
