    Maybe it’s wishful thinking that Donna Lewis isn’t on the list as well, considering how much of an embarrassment Reply All is.

    Always always always I look at a picture like “Brooklyn” and think to myself, “Where is that young lady now? If she’s alive, she would probably be around 80. What kind of life did she have? Did she keep that beautiful smile?” Inquiring minds want to know!

    Is that the original Cyclone Fence?

    GoComics left Paige Braddock (Jane’s World) off the list, too.

    @The Old Wolf

    In Ms. T’s blog today there is a cool picture titled: Round Hair, Glasses, and Pointy Shoes. I often copy some of theses neat pictures and email them to my granddaughters, ages 14 and 12. Although I wanted to send “Round Hair” because I thought it was so cool, I didn’t.

    Then a little below that picture I saw your post of a conversation between Morgan Freeman and Mike Wallace. Thank you, Sir. After reading that post I sent the picture to my granddaughters.

    Here’s my point: I am white. My daughter is white. My son-in-law is black.

    I have always said in a joking manner that my granddaughters are 50/50 and can choose to be called either white or black and I choose to call them white. But they are black girls and they know it. Still, I tip-toe around the issue of their color. I don’t ever want to offend them and always want them to view me as their ultra-liberal color blind grandfather. But I sense that its not really their feelings that I am protecting but it might be an underlying racism in myself that I am fearful to examine.

    I agree fully with Morgan Freeman and have in the past gone out of my way to make sure I say, “See the guy in the plaid shirt?” instead of saying, “See the black guy?” But is it this constant awareness of being correct that highlights in me an internal deep seeded racism, or is it just an inherent aspect of being American?

    Again, I thank you for your post but I’ve got to think about this.

    Wow! You have 12 and 14 y.o. Grandaughters? You should probably have more furrows. Congrats!

    The one painted stone looks like something created by Senor Wences.

    Alright? S’alright.

    As a (very black) Ghanaian friend of mine says of black people around the world, “I am black, they are negro.” Is he being racist? I have mixed race cousins who just call themselves “people”.

    I honor you, JD, for your deep and honest post.

    I never knew anyone had banned the word “tornado.” Why not “front” or “isotherm”?

    And aren’t those glasses pointy and not round?

    Hey Teresa! What do you call that thing?

    A Horfishosaur? Dinoforse? Tyrannohorsus Carp? (or, better yet, in a nod to DSOTH, TyrannoHorace Carp).

    @Rotifer Thalweg

    I’d say more ornamental goldfishy than carp. To put a Japanese spin on it, how about a Goldforsezilla?
