Shaundra Scott, Executive Director of ACLU of South Carolina, said a priority for the American Civil Liberties Union will be to file a lawsuit to fight the ban on transgender people serving in the U.S. Military. She said discrimination, racial equality, and other issues are also on the list of concerns for the ACLU for the next four years.

There are too many of us who, over the years, have questioned our right to exist. If you are reading this then you are one of the survivors. Once upon a time I believed a certain bridge abutment on the way to work had my name on it. Fortunately, that bridge abutment is both figuratively and literally no longer there.

Don't forget to remember your brothers in the hurricane affected states of the USA.

I just completed reading an article in the San Antonio "Express-News" that identifies some similarities to our Prime Timers organization. The article describes the organization of Freemasons, a secret society, dating back to the Middle-Ages. They are described as the world's oldest fraternity. In the United States, the organization surged in membership after World War I as returning soldiers sought to replicate the bonding that occurred among soldiers during the war through masonry when they returned home. The article says there were about 8,000 Freemasons in San Antonio in the 1920s mainly comprised of returning soldiers and members from protestant churches. Today, membership has dwindled to approximately 1,200 and almost no one is joining Masons now. To continue to fund their operation, they began providing tours of their once-secret Scottish Rite Cathedral in the late 1990s and renting it for weddings and other events.
