Just sitting on your porch

It’s still there, and there it remains, at least for another day.

Nah, and tornadoes don’t freak me out. All that time spent in the basement waiting out tornado warnings as a kid, I guess.

Hell, I’m enough of a weather freak that I kinda wish I _had_ been at the beach to see it. . . .

“While it may appear an inevitability, how did capitalism come to take hold in the US? Was slave production in the American South actually capitalist or something else? What was the nature of the Civil War and the emergence of sharecropping in the conflict’s wake?
