Now I'd like to show my appreciation to the brothas:
xxGambitxx, Black Viking, folobatuyi, Empty Purnata, Huey, ddouble, MidLifeman, Vox, Kresge, and even Shango67 ... and others ... I'm not about to try to sit here and run down everybody.
But thanks for the camaraderie, the intelligence and male insight, the laughs, the shared dreams to succeed and get ahead in this white man's world, and the shared frustrations with the sistas (glad I'm not the only one!)... let's not forget the shared appreciation of azz ... Ya'll are the black guy friends that I lack in real life!
But dd, you do have some annoying hall monitor tendencies ... and Shango, I'd recommend at least one fling with a white girl ...
