<whew!> Brother Keita got me to looking at this thing. I started at google, of course, and came up with these links. wow!! Might it be worthwhile to struggle through this stuff and try to make some sense out of it? Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. Equal Protection Clause Frankly, I'm not real sure quite how I feel about all of this. Nor am I sure, yet, that I understand quite what the ramifications might be. I do know that I came up with a whole lot of confusion. I hope that we could work on this for a while and gain some clarity/insight into this place that we all work, live, play, raise families and die in.
