They call him Sam...

I've known Sam since we were in high school, and I believe the first time we met was at the "Three Brothers Shoe Shine Shop" while I worked up the street at Monty's Men's and Boy's Store. At the time we were wearing knobbed shoes, either Stacy Adams or a pair of Johnston and Murphy's...if you could afford them. It was the fad to have a pair and put on what were called "sole-savers" an extra sole about a half-inch thick.

The "Three Brothers Shoe Shine Shop" was the place to go to maintain that spit shine when coursing or tamping on the drag...Davis Avenue. Of course, you wore a "Ban-Lon" shirt with matching socks and maybe a "Yogi-bear" styled brim.

Anyway, Sam and I entered the US Navy and both were in Aviation combat squadrons. He was in a squadron flying Corsairs and I was in one flying Skyhawks.

Sam and I returned to Mobile after our hitches, he entered politics after serving as a community leader, moving on to the County Commission and eventually the Mayor of Mobile. The reason he's no longer the mayor is because the lazy black constituency didn't get off of their asses to re-elect him.

This made me realize that a photo identification is not the problem in the black community because "niggers" (got to keep it real) probably wouldn't vote if they had them. This is some family laundry that I best not hang out to dry at this time...for in my knowing Sam, he has a low tolerance for laziness and bullsh*t...too.    

I didn't ask for permission...I took it!

We're deceiving ourselves if we feel we can micromanage this mideast family feud.  Just a week ago the Jews were getting ready to move against the Persians and now the Persians are going to move against the Arabs and then the Jews later?  Evidently, our helmets are no longer hiding the term "idiots" written across our foreheads.
