I understand how you got that moniker. You have stirred up some stuff. I am optimistic that ANC2 in Northwest can get their stuff together.
Way to go!!

Thanks Justice. lol. Without a doubt my favorite quote is by Malcolm X who said "My hobby is stirring up black people". Well my hobby is definetly making sure that ALL people feel free to stand up for what it is right - even if I don't happen to agree with it.

Every revolution begins with just one voice. Let us all be that voice.
