I want to say November, 1989. Barbara went into labor during her wedding to Tom, as Travis was trying to get there to stop the wedding. He had left town because of a brain tumor.
They did leave the show. Nina came back by Spring for a few appearances, then full time by summer where Cliff was pronounced dead. That's is when she married Matt, then Cliff turned out to be alive in South America and PB returned to the show.
Miss M...being divine as always.
I get that feeling, too, dragonflies. Primarily because, the GOP has offered nothing concrete in the way of alternatives.
Congress will switch around some of the language, shave off a little here-and-there from the provisions in order to put their own stink on it. But, as I said, either on here or on FB, if and when they DO premiere Trump's Insurance for Everybody (tm), take a good, hard look at the bill and then tell me it isn't Obamacare or the ACA under a different name.
It's been my contention that their long-term goal is to eradicate Obama as much as possible from our history. Think about all the actual history (often involving minorities) that gets whitewashed (pun intended) or left out entirely in elementary, middle and high school history books; or all the misinformation that is passed down from one generation to the next (like Abraham Lincoln freeing the slaves) until it becomes fact in the court of public opinion. IMO, that's what we're seeing the GOP do now to the outgoing president.
They will make it seem as if Obama did absolutely little while in office except be the first African-American president -- and even then, I suspect, history books will come to say that 1) his birth certificate was suspect, and 2) he wasn't REALLY Black since, after all, his mother was Scots-Irish, thus taking away even the significance of his election in the first place. In the end, and if the GOP has their way, Obama's will be regarded by future generations either as an illegitimate presidency or one as ineffectual as, say, Franklin Pierce's, or Martin Van Buren's.
We don't THINK this kind of historical revision can happen, especially in this day and age, but if the history of witnessing, recording, sharing and passing down, teaching and analyzing history has taught me anything (particularly where it concerns African-Americans), it's that it CAN happen. It always HAS happened, and it always WILL happen, so help us God.
