    Facebook did a wonderful job of reuniting me with people from school, some I haven't seen as far back as 5th grade.  Unfortunately a shocking number of them turned out to be teabagger wingnuts with OBS who rail all day long at immigrants, etc.   Sometimes I'll argue with one until they break down and admit they're racist ("I always did have a problem with the blacks," actual quote).

    It's disappointing that instead of catching up with me and my classmates and filling me in on themselves, they instead use their energy to email-bomb me with "scary Muslim born in Kenya" bullshit.  I have way too many of those in my life without digging up another one.
