The change in attitudes that caused a generation of whites to release their fears and return to the urban centers their parents fled a generation ago is the same change in attitudes that allowed millions of white Americans, in the quiet sanctity of the voting booth, to vote for a black man named Barack Hussein Obama.

"The Lion of Mid-West."The match was declared a draw, although I thought Wonder Boy won.

Bassey was the second African to become a world boxing champion.

I can’t remember if it was sixth, seventh, or eigth grade, but Laura had this one beak that she formed from aluminum foil and covered with American flag. She held it to her face and called it the, “Patriotic Beak”. Genius!
