re: Who should I contact regarding my disgust of Jesse Goldberg - 88TIger
[quote]I like the response to your email. But they better get this guy under control quickly or just cut bait.

re: Has anyone else been positive for Covid? - 88TIger

re: What ridiculously stupid thing will Auburn University do? - 88TIger
[quote]though he did do considerable harm when he was, for about 20 of his 80 years,[/quote] I think you might have that backwards. He was running on segregation in the '72 election...so if he was born in 1919 then that is well into his 50's. Face it, he was for segregation and happened to change...
