ezs note:  Horace Duncan.  Fred Coker.  Will Allen.   Three African-Americans who were taken from their homes and lynched.  Springfield, Missouri did what was right and put up a plaque commemorating this ugly event - but it's only worth it if you take the children to the square and let them know what happened there.

ezs note:  Missourians - I am glad that The Kansas City Star has asked your governor to reconsider his position on LGBT issues.  I honestly hope that he does.   However, if he refuses, please think of a few names - Republican, Democratic, or other - who might consider a run for governor.

ezs note:  Missourians - here are four things you can do to change things.

1.  Call (don't e-write) the governor.  His number is 573-751-3222.
2.  Call the state congressperson and state senator.
3. If you hear of a protest march,  go if you possibly can. Go early and often.
4.  Call or e-write your like-minded friends to do the same.
