O my gosh... in picture window, a quote, "Hate can not drive out hate." Where did M.L.K. get such un-American idea?

Call Thought Police, Linh! The disloyal inhabitant of the old apartment building must be immediately evicted! That is before love-light breaks through upon neoconservative opposite philosophy, and Muslim nations become something more than just another entity for American multi-million dollars to either buy or bomb.

Good history lesson in window, Linh, and thank you.

Yo Chuck,

A little context: This is an all-white block just South of Center City. A house here costs about $650,000.

Linh: Thank you for context, I thought the picture originated from your usual neighborhood travels.

In future, I'd like to take you about 2-miles east, across Lackawanna River, and up Montage Mountain. There you'll see a rather new development of houses, costing $1 million each and up. Plus a County Club and golf course.

Not too often, I take a spin through Glenmaura and the only signs I see are seasonal banners upon porches and political yard signs, for example, mostly Romney/Ryan or sparse Obama/Biden.

I suppose you either read or saw Pasternak's "Dr. Zhivago"? Yuri Zhivago lived in a pricey Russian house, and as a sensitive medical doctor and poet, he seemed aware of M.L.K.'s concept "hate can not drive out hate," and he seemed least surprised to see armed revolutionary proletariat crash inside his girlfriend's house, and make occupation.


To this end, and speaking as a weapon-less neurotic friend, and before its too late, maybe the next best U.S. protest movement will be Occupy the Conscience instead of "Occupy Wall Street?"

There must be charred remnants of American conscience & T. Paine common sense left, eh Linh?
