All good things must come to pass....
Great artist make us ask questions.
Who are we?
Why are we?
What will we leave behind?
Are we really here?
They say "love" never fails; but "time" does....
The butler sees a new White House
Now retired, he started when blacks were in the kitchen.

Reporting from Washington -- For more than three decades, Eugene Allen worked in the White House, a black man unknown to the headlines. During
some of those years, harsh segregation laws lay upon the land. He trekked home every night to his wife, Helene, who kept him out of her
kitchen. At the White House, he worked closer to the dirty dishes than to the Oval Office. Helene didn't care; she just beamed with pride. President Truman called him Gene. President Ford liked to talk golf with six days a week.
Sometimes you can look back at pictures and wonder how in the world,
or what were they thinking
or are you for real....
The truth is that most times, at the time, it seemed like a good idea to somebody.
The truth is that if it wasnt, those who disagreed didn't disagree enough to do something about it. Evil runs amok when the good people hide silently...but who is good among us?
