John Hope Franklin RIP

And as I've said before so many times when folks like you pass--who is around to take your place--Mike Dyson? Oh well.
Good bye Professor. You have a lot of time on your hands in Heaven, for the dead already know the truth of the past.

I share your concern, Christopher. Everybody who put the US at the forefront in the 20th Century is keeling over, and we tools don't have the tools to keep the engine running.
