Who is the poster of in the background?

Marques-Johnson-Bucks.jpg

Former Clipper & Buck Small Forward Marques Johnson. The top poster is of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

I notice MJ also got a pic up of himself hitting "the shot" on the left wall.

This is an outstanding THROWBACK picture that I bet few people have ever seen before. I like seeing the old NBA pics of the 60s, 70s, 80s.

At E.A. Laney High School in Wilmington, I looked at that picture every day as I walked by our school's attendance office. It was a very large version that covered the whole wall...good times.

    • From the ssa wiki part on its history: The Social Security law was very unpopular among many groups, especially farmers, who resented the additional taxes and feared they would never be made good. They lobbied hard for exclusion. Furthermore, the Treasury realized how difficult it would be to set up payroll deduction plans for farmers, for housekeepers who employed maids, and for nonprofit groups; therefore they were excluded. State employees were excluded for constitutional reasons (the federal government cannot tax state government). Federal employees were also excluded. Many textbooks, however, falsely indicate that the exclusions were the product of southern racial hostility toward blacks; there is no evidence of that in the record.[15] Other scholars have replicated and endorsed DeWitt's analysis, agreeing that the exclusions were made by policy experts on technical grounds and were not grounded on racial hostility. Rodems and Shaefer note in all other countries unemployment insurance programs "excluded domestic and agricultural workers when they were first implemented, a fact that the key New Deal policy makers were well aware of.   Interesting stuff.

    • this is an old story that anti-progressive media is pushing. all that happened is she applied for a loan for the college, for which they're required to submit a list of their donations so the office knows that they're able to pay back the loans. she submitted the list but included bequeathmets on the donor list instead of as a separate list, assuming they counted as donations. that's it. that's the entire story. it's a minor paperwork error that comes with a small fine.
