An English In Kentucky


















April 13th 2010    Tim Candler

     Yesterday the question why was never broached.  Rather it was do's and don'ts within the context of grey areas which made the process so very much simpler. 

      There was levity over the question "Have you ever committed a crime or offense for which you were not arrested?"  An opportunity apparently to demonstrate good character through the confession of sins.   To the question "What is one reason colonists came to America?"    My answer was "Religious freedom."    

    Perhaps it was the English in me because the second question was "Why did the colonists fight the British?"  And perhaps it was the African in me because the fourth question was "What group of people was taken to American and sold as slaves?"

     Joe Biden is the vice President of the Unites States.  Congress makes the laws.   And the last question, has passed from memory, but I would like to think it was question 59, "Who lived in America before the Europeans arrived?"
