Sorry, Charlie...

Many people boo-ed when Congress voted to take a vacation, leaving many important issues unresolved. However, one thing that they did accomplish was to offer an apology for something that happened in the 1800’s.

This apology for slavery and for the injustices that occurred under the oligarchical system known to many as Jim Crow. CNN provides a bit more expository on the aforementioned.

That act may seem too little too late for some. Specifically, Senator Obama feels that actions need to accompany those words.

On a side note, my cousin Congressman John Conyers has been trying to get a bill passed in that regard... and it will likely die on the vine.
