Even Liberals Love Our Bomb
http://AlumniSandstorm.com/Xtra/Wor/170603-Love_My_Bomb.jpg

Tale as old as time
True as it can be
Certain as the sun
Rising in the east
Richland and the Bomb.......

Thanks Mike FRANCO ('70) for debunking that taking away our
mascot is a "liberal" thing. It is just revisionist history, 
and not a very good revision at that.

Many of us are old enough to remember when both political
parties actually talked to each other and tried to work
together. Some of us grew up in homes with a democrat father and
republican mother, or vice-versa. Believe me, politics is NOT
about what my parents fought. Growing up, does anyone remember
political labels? I don't remember Ralph or Maxine  (dad and
Mom) ever referring to anyone as conservative or liberal. There
were just communists and US.

I'm proud of my Bomb that resides in my front yard. Someone 
even left me a note one day that said, "Go Bombers." I have far 
more trouble with the name of our high school being "changed - 
changed for some very odd reason.

-Jamie WORLEY ('64) ~ Best wishes from Seattle, where it is 
      trying SO hard to be summer.

Re: "Liberals"

As I remember, the slogan "Proud of the Cloud" didn't appear
until after certain revisionist-history school teachers started
making a stink about the bomb and the cloud. I can't pin down
exactly when the slogan appeared but it didn't exist in '66.

Certainly not all Liberals curse the Cloud, but almost all who
do curse it, ARE Liberals.. even if they claim to be Moderates.
Almost all so-called Moderates are simply Liberals who don't
want to own up to the brand "Liberal." The operative word in
those sentences is ALMOST.
