I quit FB because I had no real friends there, save for one or two. I no longer talk to the victimizing older brother who still has my mother's ashes in a closet there in Phoenix years after I offered to pay half of the cost of shipping her body to be in a grave with our father in Bucks County Pa - he my "brother" among former online "friends".
The thing about FB is that I joined a few groups related to Philly centered on neighborhoods. One was of the greater area of Kensington and one on the narrower neighborhood of Harrowgate, an invented Railroad Burb of the 1880s within Philadelphia County which eventually became the factory town that I grew up in. I quit the Kensington FB forum after someone made a nice comment on the poet Maya Angelou after her death, a poet of which I had no particular fondness in her writings, but the anonymous - they did have their full names on FB - but I did not know them except as "friend" of a "friend" response or hatred of a black female poet. (and I only recently bothered to read a Wikipedia bio of Maya to realize what a monumental life she had led even if I was not previously aware of it etc.) Well I shy away from conflict. That and later in life realizing that I have had a touch or more of A.D.D. all my life which in retrospect explains why I have not been more successful in my life of trial and error false start runs for the money. That many times for me and my memory, a word like "spatialize" would send me to a dictionary in fear of my unknown ADD to be discovered or looked down upon in comments by Ph'ds or worse I-V league trained lawyers in forums that I did not really belong in. Should know my place in life this late in life for "my kind".
Well I shied away from Kensington FB after the white jackals got their jollies off chewing up the bones of the person who thought it appropriate to say a simple RIP to a black poet on FB. I quit that "Forum". That over time, the FB crowd talk a lot of code and the "they ruined the old neighborhood" talk told me that a lot of people I grew up with and did not grow or accept others in their own right and or light of the divine within that the Quakers rhetoric be prone to in the Quaker subculture context of Philly.

Recently this Jerk Off Opus Dei Catholic X-senator Santorum of Pennsylvania shows up on the Jerk Off Fox Network wanting to show and share his dirty tighty whitey racists tracks, share them with his friends, like papal royalty like Countess Annie Leary like Newt Gingrich where it can be purchased as in bought and sold ambassadorships and hang out in the white teenage country club locker room to share w/ brotherhood members of the Dick memories of their conquests over c**ts and n****** and democrats - context...
Rick Santorum did not live in Pennsylvania when he was senator from that Alabama North turf. He lived in Virginia where his children could attend daily mass at his Opus Dei suburb of purity.
Of course my relatives went to Montgomery county in 1964, after the local Philly riots and I have not seen or spoken to them since, me be poor and not therefore not white enough for them I think. The incident mentioned below in Huntington Valley Pa., right over the Philly city line, where they live, happened before with the mixup on scheduling and the black kids upsetting the delusion of safety in the burbs in the 90s or the 00s - even pools needs cash flow even if it from the city budget of that distant place where inferior people live etc.
This time, it blew up almost as a flashpoint of toxic flammable hate being ignited by Obama at this pool in July 2009 which I think in some bizarre way of Catholic College Education in America these days means what Santorum sadly genuinely believes what he is saying. Anointed white penised Christian males tell no lies? Obama did indeed exacerbate racism simply by being born and being himself and of course being POTUS.
Sad how America in its best parts, the burbs do not know how to retire, leave the next generation to deal with the day to day stuff, live and let live like the rest of planet, and enjoy the multi-culturalism as it exists in big northern and west coast cities. Sad how some successful white men who are workaholics and lonely and cannot retire and relax end up like people like Anthony Bourdain who are talented with the gift of the gab and have skills and have never matured past adolescence into adulthood. Good luck with obscurity Rick. And your lonely old age when yours kids discover their freedom from your putrid chains. Whatever.
