David, while I can understand you have a 'passion' regarding your stance on politics, this is NOT the venue to discuss these things!!
When I created this website back in about 2008-09, the intended purpose was to reconnect with classmates and to promote news of the upcoming Reunions, share photos. We made it clear from the beginning that this group site would NOT be used for political rants and it would NOT be a venue for promoting one's businesses. Last Fall, prior to the 50th Reunion, some may remember a few unnecessary and rude attacks thrown back and forth between a handful of classmates which resulted in at least one asking to be permanently removed from this site. This is not welcomed on our Class site . . . there are plenty of other sites one can go to vent and / or share their personal, political opinions; again this is NOT one of them.
I, for one, would like to see this 'closed' website group protected from all unnecessary negativity and just to be used solely as a nice, FRIENDLY place to reconnect with old friend!
To ALL members using this website, I would appreciate that, going forward, everyone make a concerted effort NOT to discuss 'trigger points' that divide us so deeply today. Try instead to embrace the old courtesies of the 50s-60s when it was not considered polite to discuss politics, religion, income, etc with mere acquaintances.
If this 'Class of 71' website is going to become just another political ranting site like so many others that exist today, I propose we shut it down! Yet, when I think about the thousands of hours spent developing and continually updating this site; the thousands of hours Susan Deese-Roberts spent searching for 'lost' classmates and uploading their information; the thousands of hours many of you have spent sharing news and birthday greetings with each other, it would be sad to see it come to an end and loose all the information we've managed to gather here.
Perhaps it time to create and POST a paragraph for the front page providing a statement of 'common sense' rules for using this site. Anyone violating those agreed upon terms of usage will be given a warning and if it persists, will be removed from the site so that all others may continue to enjoy the site as it was originally intended.

Steve and I followed each other in the AHS ' 71 alphabet - Melon, Melton - next to each other in the yearbooks and sat next to each other during graduation! A special memory - one FUN evening of country-western dancing someplace in Tularosa . . . he was a fantastic dancer!
My sincerest condolences to Steve's family and friends!
The first thing I remember about Becky is her sweet laugh! She had a distinct laugh I would have loved to hear again!
