    What happened to the impending C4 explosion?

    The amazing thing, WELL worth celebrating: we have a constitution that enabled such conversations… and enabled the elimination of slavery, provided for changes giving women the right to vote, and much much more.

    That is truly amazing and inspiring.

    The situation was bad, but not quite that bad:
    1. There were no restrictions on white landless people. That’s simply false. (They only prohibited certain kinds of federal taxation, leaving it to the states. Remember, they were adamant about having a very small federal gov’t.)
    2. The constitution itself applied to everybody. It never mentioned race, nor gender.
    3. Many races were slaves, even whites. (And some blacks were free and even slave owners!)
    4. Native Americans were independent. They were not taxed and were not citizens. That’s basically true today: their lands are not subject to US law.

    (The constitution was an admitted compromise, but even when signed it limited protection of the slave trade to a 20 year timeframe. They knew the end was coming, and some were quite passionate about it.)

    Bonus is for Cobra. Just call Breezy. Stay in touch!

    Right On, Dan! Two exciting corollaries:
    - To have a great come from behind win, y’gotta be losing.
    - To have a miracle, y’gotta need a miracle.

    Sounds like good advice for an exciting comic world :)

    I suspect Dan has something up his sleeve. No way should Breezy disappear from his life (unless yet again to help him discover who he really is…)

    She’s the best thing that ever happened to him.

    I love how this is developing. And particularly that Rip has both someone amazing keeping him sane in the “our house…two cats in the yard” sense (yet still right there on the Danger)… AND he’s Mr Ka-Pow at the same time.

    It will be interesting to see if he can find a way to do things like teach R.J to drive (maybe that should be Breezy’s job… I’d hate to see the insurance bill :-D )

    Groan … As one who used to spend summers on the Cape, I totally get this :-D

    Dan, you MUST have some of that in your blood to be able to write that joke :)

    “Know” instead of “Now”… Dan, how long has it been since a typo slipped through? You have readers with eagle eyes ;)

    Or the whole thing is a sacrifice to the gods… maybe the town is sitting on top of a giant volcano?
