    BC - the "effective community organizer" who can't keep from identifying contributors here, and in daily life I'm sure, by their color. Wonder just how effective his tremendous work is. To see the administration or policies as ineffective, wrong or even corrupt is something to bring to light. Stay with facts, information. Calling out a "white princess" tells me that the less I would have to do with you the better.
    And I have planted my share of trees also. Found out it's a lot easier to get help without a chip on my shoulder.
