Duck Test

If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck.


This phrase may have originally be coined as:

When I see a bird that walks like a duck and swims like a duck and quacks like a duck, I call that bird a duck.

· James Whitcomb Riley (1849-1916)

50 Years

Today is the 50th Anniversary of the ratification of the 15th Amendment by the State of California.

Yep, California didn’t ratify the 15th Amendment until 3 April 1962 — the last state to ratify the amendment preventing discrimination in voting practices based on race; and just in time to usher in the Civil Rights movement in full force.
