I'll be at the festival.

Look for a carbuncle-covered geezer in a shit-stained speedo. I may let my scrotum hang thru the left leg opening of my trunks.

What is this sankofa they are talking about?

sankofa..

(s)hooting
(a)rson
(n)umbers
(k)nifing
(o)bstruction
(f)ighting
(a)ssault

Is sankofa and acronym?
I am not suggesting that it is, I found the above on the web and did not seem to find much else, but I was somewhat pressed for time and have not had the chance to continue my research. Nothing political like left or right intended at all here.

I agree! I am so glad that I live in CT now and those conservatives can't win a toilet seat much less and election. We just welcome everyone in and if they need a little help (food, clothing, shelter, cell phone, cash) for a few generations no problem. We just tax the sh!t out of those horrible bankers, insurance execs and those McMahon's. We're all on the same planet so who are those conservatives to say that you should have to share with people that are perfectly able, but just don't feel like working because they want to get drunk and abuse their kids? So glad there are likeminded people on here. What a relief!!!!

And the racism is what? Oh you mean the nonexistant kind. Got it.

By the way, stealing from one group to benefit another is racism. If you are able, think about it...not that you are expected to reach a rational conclusion.

Nonexistent? You really are an uneducated nutter huh?

Poor mindless conservatives are so brainwshed that they cant see the forest through the trees!

There is wealth distribution happening, but its going from the middle class to the rich, and you are dumb enough to cheer it on!

Conservatives are so cowardly!

Actually, the wealthiest are the liberals. They are liberal with the money of those that work for a living. Look at Gates, Buffet,etc. The richest of the rich all liberals and yet they want the middle class to provide subsidies to the people that don't work. I guess that appeals to the uneducated and on the dole persons like yourself.

I would park on Fillmore or Genesee as close to the park as possible, or on any of the side streets around there.
