Georgia Rep. John Lewis, who backed Hillary Clinton in his state’s February 5 Democratic presidential primary, announced Wednesday he is switching his support to Barack Obama to reflect the will of his constituents. ”Something is happening in America,” the 11-term congressman, a bloodied veteran of the civil rights movement, said in a statement issued by his office. “There is a movement, there is a spirit, there is an enthusiasm in the hearts and minds of the American people that I have not seen in a long time, since the candidacy of Robert Kennedy.” He is also a longtime friend of Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, and said he had “a deep and abiding love” for both.
But he added, “I think the candidacy of Sen. Obama represents the beginning of a new movement in American political history that began in the hearts and minds of the people of this nation. And I want to be on the side of the people, on the side of the spirit of history.”
..Mr. Lewis- you took the words right outta my mouth>+++
Here’s a bit of a mind-blower:
The world’s first time machine? Tunnel to the past could open door to future within three months, say Russians
Time travel could be a reality within just three months, Russian mathematicians have claimed.
They believe an experiment nuclear scientists plan to carry out in underground tunnels in Geneva in May could create a rift in the fabric of the universe.
The European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) hopes its “atom-smashing” tests – which aim to recreate the conditions in the first billionth of a second after the “Big Bang’” created everything – will shed invaluable light on the origins of the universe.
But Irina Aref’eva and Igor Volovich, of Moscow’s Steklov Mathematical Institute, say the energy produced by forcing tiny particles to collide at close to the speed of light could open the door to visitors from the future.
Interestingly, Aref’eva and Volovich claim that the wormhole they believe the CERN experiment will open up will not provide us with the means to travel through time, or at least not back through time. Our end of the rift in time would be the day that the experiment is conducted — and that is the farthest back anyone could travel using the wormhole. They talk about visitors from the future potentially coming through the wormhole to our era, but the linked article doesn’t say whether we would have the ability to use the wormhole to move rapidly forward in time and then back again to this era.

blackberry: I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for everything you’ve helped me with. Yes, you do drive me crazy sometimes..but still, you’ve changed my life. Today, I thought I had lost you.I was pacing around the house../the kitchen../the mystery halls…./the control room./ Visons flashing through my mind: When was the last time I saw you???—-Did I bring you in the from the car??–Had I finally f*cked around and lost you?? No! You were sitting on my desk- under the amp. Warm waves rushed over me– exquisitry. +++Anyway- you’re lovely. A smart little device…so handy. We’re very futuristic together, me holding you in my palm…so 2008. Do you know, that if we went back in time…say the 1200s- I’d be burned at the stake if people saw that I had something like you?? I’d be accused of heresy. Maybe even the alchemists would have agreed in going after me. Well..maybe not the ones that could tell the future. @@@*Thankfully humans have progressed slightly since then. We may even get a black President! Wouldn’t that be ill? Anyway. Its real good that your still here. More adventures for us. oxoxOs oN nY+_
