    Thanks to all for your comments. I can only hope that others have also read this entry and then read about Mattie and his message. I look forward to the day of the TRUE Brotherhood of Man — or perhaps there should be a PC term like “Camaraderie of Humankind.”


  5. Hope that day comes soon!

    A Very Belated Merry Christmas (or other appropriate Holiday Greetings) to you and yours Roland!
