On this historic date

Here we are on the 200th birthday of Confederate president and Democrat Jefferson Davis, with the breaking news that an African-American Senator, Barack Obama has won the nomination of that same Democratic party for the presidency of the United States.

We've come a long way.

This is just one of the reasons I love being a teacher and living in this great country.
