george fulks/June28, 2011: photo rejects

Occupying my present Hillsboro, Illinois residence in September, 1996, a member of the fire department lived in this house behind me.

Brother-in-law Bernard L. Jackson caught this eight pound catfish in Georgia during 1968. Member of "Woodsmen Of The World," Bernard shared with me love of the outdoors. An extremely knowledgable wildlife man was he.

Overheard a Staunton, Illinois woman as she conversed with a friend. "There's a lot of white trash that has moved into Staunton now. We used to have good schools," she said. "They let their dogs loose. The town is not the way it used to be." As I exited that "Everything Is A Dollar Store," I am reminded of how difficult it is to walk and work within the Patrician class of the ancient Roman descendants. They still try to rule in that manner.


Working with students needing supplementary assistance in gaining early reading skills, my own background was such that I was able to attain a link with them. This particular group consisted of students whose parents were young and had yet to attain great wealth. What they had gained from inheritance did not allow those students to attain income levels comparable to those of the Patrician class in society. America is a great place. The three are now wealthy people- thirty or more years later. So am I.

(Here's another group of high achievers.)Attaining means to provide for oneself and his family food, clothing, shelter, medical treatment, clean air and water, and a sense of having the right to exist on planet Earth defines most clearly what is wealth or what is poverty. America is a fantastic place.(Down With The Patrician Class!!)
