A real testimony to the courage of these activists and Robert Kennedy. Shortly after this (1968) I was stationed at Ft. Gordon, Georgia and saw for the first time the separate black and white bathrooms and water fountains. For a California boy, this was a shock. Nice site Bob, I have linked to it.

Hey, I'm glad you like the site -- thanks for the blog entry and linking up. I've been enjoying "World Gone Mad" for a while, and it's a great mix. I recommend it highly, unless of course "you love the war, support the president, go to church every Sunday and watch Fox News, you're probably in the wrong place."
