Subject: RE: 'Land Where The Blues Began' Lomax, Sad.
And, in response to the previous posting by "Peter T" ... it is well documented that it has been the armed sevices the really integrated our nation, at least as far as it's been integrated so far. I well remember the day I stepped off the troop train at Fort Ord, California, and become one of 200 lost souls at basic training. We were from all over America. And hey ... we even had niggers with us! Our differences did not last 24 hours! CHEERS, Bob
