Hey Z,
Thanx for posting that link. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif..It's a good read and a well deserved invite..I'd love to go myself, just to be a part of history in the making, and say i was there. I'm 5 hrs from DC, but i'd prolly start hitting traffic way before there in Philly..That will be quite an honor for the remaining members ~S~ http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

I heard the report on KCBS yesterday morning, and that is exactly what one of them said.

A well deserved honor for them, IMHO.

I tell ya.. I have never been more proud of my country.. or more hopeful than I am today. For better or worse President Elect Obama was elected by a wide swatch of America.. there was not one ethnic group that that elected him that could have been excluded with the same outcome.. and that tells me that perhaps we as a nation have finally gotten to the point where we can see beyond our skins.. even if individuals still have issues.. Look at Louisiana.. This country is perhaps, FINALLY.. becoming what it's ideals have espoused and inspired for so many years... which to me is a GREAT thing.
