Slaves in the Family by Edward Ball. About the Ball's family involvement in the largest owner's of plantations and human property in South Carolina since 1698 and the author's search for decendants of these slaves as well as black descendent who are relatives. Very comprehensive research of the history of this strange period of this country. Not since the Alex Haley's book "Roots" has there been so much revealed in historial accuracy. Includes pictures. Very good reading. I highly recommend it, if only to gain new perspective on racial understanding.

LJWorld, I don't insult people on these board, excepting Tiahrt. I suggest you always remove the posts of posters that feel impulsively compelled to ridicule others. By not removing them, you allow these boards to slide into expressions of base emotions.

I hope you have a perfect day. Just get it all out, frustrations sometimes lead to insults. Trust me, we can take it.... insult away if you want to. ... Anyway, if that doesn't work.....Quit.... No sense making a damn fool of yourself.

sunshine_noise - Read "slaves in the family" a couple of years ago, and loved it. You should also read "The Sweet Hell Inside" by Edward Ball, on the same subject.

while "base emotions" may imply the "lowest," "base" also implies the most necessary. the lowest emotions are the most important.

am reading: by Irving Wallace, "the fan club." fictional story of how three otherwise ordinary guys become kidnappers and rapists.

What Went Wrong? by Bernard Lewis. Book about the fall of the once mighty Islamic Empire of the Ottoman Turks. Mr. Lewis outlines the various reasons for the fall from grace of an empire that was, at it's height, a world of culture, science, art and literature. It is a shame to witness the plunge as they tried to keep up with the rise of the West. A very interesting book.

Books on toilet paper. I get a little reading in everyday that way. Some days I get a lot of reading in.

"What pleases the ladies" by the only author worth reading, Voltaire.

Leslie Swearingen 6 years, 2 months ago

Voltaire is one of my favorite authors also. He had a very interesting part to play in the Great War.
