Poor John Adams was subjected to L.W's dissatisfaction
...with her e-mail account. She sat with it all day trying to clear her Outbox. Though no message was in it, it registered one. While she could receive messages, she couldn't send them, but she could delete them in the outbox--all except for the hidden one. By the time she had read all the online help she could stand and restored her system three times because when she closed outlook, it would no longer open, she was upset and had no business picking up her pencil. You can tell the mood she was in by the angry stokes. She would tell you about old John Adams, the second president of the US, bit she's still consumed with the Outlook problem. She did mention, however as she ran by me screaming and pulling her hair out, how she read there were 2,500,000 people in the 13 colonies in 1776 and one in five of them was black. Everybody in the Congress had slaves--even though they wrote" All men are created equal." in the Declaration of Independence. It seems they might have been referring to themselves and their English brethren across the sea who the colonists didn't think were supportive enough. Interesting document. John Adams was the chief spokesman for independence. Dickinson from Pennsylvania was opposed. The reps from New York abstained throughout the discussion. Even though, they were counted as pro independence on the final vote July, 2, 1776.
