I'm waiting to hear about it being burnt down, not by KKK folks, but by some congregants of some large African-American church being egged on by their pastor.

Making a static civil rights museum into a living civil rights museum is a great idea!

I drive past the Civil Rights Museum on the freeway every day. I have always intended to go see it but you know what they say about good intentions...
Maybe now I should make a more concerted effort to show my support. It will be interesting to see what it's like and to overhear any comments made by the other visitors.

I just saw Julian Bond on tv urging all black people to embrace gay rights.

Well, if he's on a news show, which he was, by definition it is "news".

I was going to post something along the lines of testing the sprinkler system in the museum, but then I thought it might be inflammatory.

More interesting would be to hear peoples' comments outside the place, or in diners and bars when it's name is brought up.
