    "Great read every day. Makes me smile as Rab muses about music and his irreverent views on the EU. Tune in, you won't be disappointed."

    "Excellent 'Blog' which can be controversial at times, while maintaining it's humour. Keep it up Big Rab!"

    "Updated every day with doses of good humour, political satire, a running commentary on the progress of author's home football team and his life."

    "Pure brilliant, so it is - I never miss it, though God knows, I've tried."

    "An inspiration to start my own blog"

    "For dipping into it's better than pakora sauce"

    "Anyone who doesn't like the EU and has a soft spot for Albion Rovers can't be all bad"

    "Facile and False"

    "Populist,puerile and prosaic"

    "Utter pish! Keep it up, I love it!"

    "People may also find the Ben Lomond Free Press blog illuminating, interesting and/or amusing. It’s not mentalist as such but familiar themes emerge. I particularly like accounts of encounters with strange elementals (of course! ELEmentals!) from elfin safety. And the fact that the blog is run by someone who plays in a blues band called Harmonica Lewinsky."

Thanks Campbell

Dorothy Counted

Dorothy Counts being mocked by an entirely white audience on enrollment day at Harding High School. September 4th, 1957

It must have been horrible. Grace under fire.

She is a hero, a fifteen year old should not have to go through this, being mocked by kids AND adults. The loneliness and disgust in her face is heartbreaking. Yet she endured it and and made history, showing us what humans are capable of.
There must have been people who symphatised with her and the cause…why did they not step forward and strech a hand to her?

(Thanks Welcome Friends)
