I posted this on the vets forum first, but also appropriate here. I heard a story today that the University of Massachusetts wants to change its mascot. What is its present mascot you ask? The Minuteman. Yes, the Minuteman. The very symbol of the power of the common man, and they want to change it. Their reasoning is that the Minuteman is a) single gendered, b) single ethnic, and c) CARRIES A FIREARM!!!! Needless to say I was awestruck. I guess history class doesn't teach the importance of the role that the Minuteman played in the creation and protection of this, the greatest of nations.

My home state. The last name is Adams. My people settled the Boston area in 1630. They've shed a lot of blood, sweat, and tears. When, (not if), my only wish is to take a few with me....... Some of my people were the minutemen!! My opinion of fellow "Americans", sinks lower daily. When the time comes, it'll be easy...
