    The site says it was written anonymously. Other people wrote anti-slavery poems; Longfellow did quite a few himself.

    Thank you, BillThompson^ In all my reading there is no period in history that makes me so sad and at the same time so angry as that of the American antebellum.

    It could be dangerous to open the fudge gates. Just look what happened when they opened the beer gates,

    “Then Hendley what was next to youngest of her seven children got sick and died. Aunt Cissy ain’t sorrowed much. She went straight up to ol’ Massa and shouted in his face, “Praise God! Praise God! My little child is gone to Jesus. That’s one child of mine you never gonna sell.”

    The last few months of Phil Frank’s “Farley” cartoon he seemed to be mounting a campaign to get the Bay Bridge renamed to “The Emperor Norton Memorial Bridge.” After all, it WAS Norton’s idea…

    There is a commenter here who recently authored a wonderful novel about the Emperor and has an e-publishing deal. I’m not gonna reveal more until the thing’s available.

    Is it just me, or is anyone else having problems signing in to the Sunday blog? The system seems to think I want to create a blog, not sign in to view an existing blog.

    There you go again, 3hour, making fun of prunes! That is discriminating against the wrinkledly challenged!!!

    There will probably be a hate-crime law coming soon to your local, progressive, weak-brained legislature!
