Racial segregation and other ways to pass a Tuesday night...

What a fantastic evening! I just had a great night out at Toastmasters. We did a Tuesday speech-a-thon with 7 speakers. It was fantastic.

My mom did a demonstration speech on the "amiable amaryllis".

Mr Mantler did a speech on the inevitability of death and the need for estate planning.

I gave a relatively impromptu speech on Rosa Parks. Turned out fantastic. I talked about how one person can really make a difference in the world. How often do you get to talk about the mentally retarded getting forcibly sterilized, the Indians not being able to vote and black/white racial segregation in Alabama? Brilliant and I got to quote a whole bunch of Martin Luther King Jr.

All in all an excellent night.
