I do know in his first attempt at publishing Journeys in Black and White which was ultimately shelved in place of Dreams of My Father, his biographical information stated he was born in Kenya.
Posted it the other day. Apparently, even if the publisher writes the biographies, it's usually approved by the author.
Why would even a publisher print an author's birthplace so erroneously?
Interesting, hadn't heard of one that preceeded "Dreams..."!

Thx for posting it again (I know, how bad not to scroll back and look at every blahblahdatabyte that floats around on Torpicks at times!:-)..)

homosexual intercourse is nothing but a pain-in-the-ass for America.
Yep, and now we'll be paying more for our insurance premiums now that any old rest stop queen can marry one of his anonymous "loves" and get spousal coverage.

Funny how this lunatic calls anonymous sex "love" and "sharing", but resented the offer of free condoms and the concern for his well-being by a stranger. He's exactly the sort who will be costing those he resents, those he can't bend over *literally*.

How did you make out at the mental clinics I provided earlier? Other than 'blahblahdatabyte' it appears you got some benefit.

<quoted text> Okay, if that's what you call proficiently, then fine. I was in 9th grade for 3 months before I was expelled from school. I went back 15 years later & got my GED. If they can't read or write, that's on them. I have sons &, they need help with school work. Why would I sit here lying about my life. I could tell you everything about me & you still wouldn't know me. My whole point is, understanding & seeing the life is different from living it! I lived it, I know it like the back of my hand. As for those dude that can't read or write elementary school English, tell them there's adult education centers across America & it is never too late!

Americans have mixed feelings about the Supreme Court's latest rulings, with a majority disapproving of its opinion on the Voting Rights Act, but in favor of two pro-gay marriage opinions, according to an ABC/Washington Post poll released Wednesday.

Just a third said they agree with the court's decision to strike down part of the Voting Rights Act, while 51 percent disagreed.

Knowledge about, and disapproval of, the VRA decision was especially high among African Americans, 71 percent of whom expressed disagreement with the ruling. Just 3 percent were undecided, while 16 percent of all adults had no opinion.

Other racial groups, however, also disapproved: Hispanic Americans disagreed by 50 percent while 40 percent agreed, and whites disagreed by 48 to 33 percent.

Slowly? Haha...come on Homer, we've know it's been coming since the Supreme Court decision. The problem is that the law is such a piece of sht, no one knows how to implement it. I've been part of the meetings between companies and insurance agents. They don't even know how to determine an employee count under the law. It's a mess!
Morsi never had a chance to implement his oppressive agenda. He should've agreed to a 1-year implementation delay to fool everyone.

"baby steps program" that's a new one. I love how you dumbasses don't even realize how stupid all your excuses sound. Stupid sheep.

They have no desire whatsoever to reach any kind of compromise with this president. Read 99% of the posts here by rightwingers, they suggest never working with this president and obstructing everything he tries to do.
And then have the gall and the audacity to blame the president, you can't make this stuff up!

I say instead of complaining about all his golf games, they should encourage more. Good things happen when he's on the golf course...point, bin laden gets killed.

Well since Obama was born in Hawaii it's a moot point. Did you vote for McCain? He was born in the Panama Canal Zone. Will you vote for Ted Cruz? He was born in Canada.
