This blog has been included in this weeks FIVE FOR FRIDAY on AsTheCrackerheadCrumbles. I hope you don't mind that I featured the image from this post. Be assured that it was in the hope of helping to attract many visitors to your wonderful site that I did so.

P.S.: My wife and I live in Springfield, and if you weren't already aware of it, KOLR had a story about this billboard on their 10 PM news this evening (10/09/2008).

For the electronic record, this photo is of a sign that I and many, many other people from southwest Missouri find deeply hurtful, offensive and racist. It shames us. It also motivates us to work even harder for real change on November 4 by helping to send Mr. Obama to the White House.

Jeez, That's embarrassing. That sign does more to reinforce negative stereotypes about the Ozarks than it does Obama.
What a shame for West Plains.
