    My previous comments were folowed up by someone talking about me agreeing or desiring more email news. However, my comments were aimed directly anc solely to my old firend Paul Cobb, and not to Ken Epstein AT ALL, if it was he returning my emails. Because unless he is black, and simply has a Jewish name, but is a Christian, I will have absolutely nothing to do with the editor, whom the late Tom Berkley would have NEVER put in total charge of the Post. So I look forward to a response from Paul, and here is my phone number also — (615) 494-9056. GIVE ME A CALL, PAUL. And simply explain to me if this is STILL a black-oriented and Christian newspaper. — George Brooks

  2. I’m curious for your next post. Excellent post. Keep writing such kind of information on your blog. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is an issue that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I stumbled across this in my hunt for something relating to this. Thanks for sharing your thoughts Wishing you best of luck..
