Great quote

This was quoted in Sojo, the Sojourner's magazine online version. It's awesome. Thanks Mike Huckabee.

As easy as it is for those of us who are white to look back and say, "That's a terrible statement," I grew up in a very segregated South, and I think that you have to cut some slack. And I'm going to be probably the only conservative in America who's going to say something like this, but I'm just telling you: We've got to cut some slack to people who grew up being called names, being told, "You have to sit in the balcony when you go to the movie. You have to go to the back door to go into the restaurant. And you can't sit out there with everyone else. There's a separate waiting room in the doctor's office. Here's where you sit on the bus." And you know what? Sometimes people do have a chip on their shoulder and resentment. And you have to just say, I probably would too. I probably would too. In fact, I may have had ... more of a chip on my shoulder had it been me. - Mike Huckabee, offering his perspective on the preaching of Rev. Jeremiah Wright. (Source: MSNBC)

Rick Davis here. Can I link your blogsite on aintsobad? I never do so without asking. Drop me a gmail and let me know.

Rick, as I told you via email, I'm flattered that you would ask! And can I (retroactively since it's been there for awhile) put your link on mine? Your writing on the institutional church is great reading.
