Hey Sacred, 

Jon Lord of Deep Purple died last week. I've been meaning to ask you if you have any concert memories to share. I never did see DP live.

kbang, I saw Deep Purple twice but only remember one of the shows. I have both ticket stubs but I can recall only the first one. I do remember the opening chords of "Smoke on the Water" and everybody going nuts. Lots of smoke from fog machines and flashing lights. If I recall correctly, we liked the show but already had tickets to see Zeppelin so we were just treading water so to speak.

Wow, according to your logic, Romney crowds are yelling "Kill the N******!"

That is some straight up racism

jmt13, I'm an Obama supporter. We use these political pictures of the week to make fun of the candidates. None of the captions any of us put on the pictures should be taken seriously.

They're all hit and miss. Sometimes we hit a home run and other times we strike out. The "1000 words" are where we really cut loose. If you get a chance, scan through a few of those. There have been some really good ones.

Ok, that was just my initial reaction.  A picture of black people and that is the phrase that comes to mind is questionable. However, I get that folks are being humorous-once in a while, doesn't work.

To think that John Kerry got sh1t-tons of grief for windsurfing like some rich dandy.

Windsurfing!

This photo of Mitt at the helm of the USS Waffle should rile up the nutters, big time!
