Needless to say, messages 268-273 were not from me. After I suggested the email bandit had probably tried to sign in using just plain "Hack" or "hack," he/she apparently decided to try it. OK, the ability to use untraceable aliases, multiple ones at that, and even pose as other specific individuals is an inherent flaw in chat rooms and email lists. Therefore, I'm pretty much signing off this list. Anyone who actually knows me still knows where to reach me. But before I go, I would like to leave you with one news item. Hope this doesn't offend any unnamed person who told me that she couldn't move back to Charleston because there were too many black people there:Clinton to serve as honorary chairman of museum advisers By BRUCE SMITHAssociated Press, 11/20/2002CHARLESTON -- Former President Bill Clinton will serve as honorary chairman of the international advisory board for a planned $37 million national black history museum in Charleston, organizers announced. The Museum of African American History is expected to open in 2007 on a site not far from the Cooper River near the South Carolina Aquarium. "The museum will tell an essential part of America's history; the passage of Africans to the Americas," the former president said in a written statement. "It is a story of great struggles, sacrifices, triumphs and achievements. "Charleston is a logical and significant place to relate this history with respect and honesty." The first black slaves arrived in Charleston in 1670, the same year the Carolina colony was founded. Freemen were given "absolute power" over slaves. Some historians estimate nearly 40 percent of the slaves brought to the United States passed through Charleston. The international advisory board will be important because African and Caribbean history and culture will be part of the story, organizers said. Earlier, museum organizers announced that actors Ruby Dee and Ossie Davis and Nobel Prize winner Elie Wiesel will also serve on the advisory panel for the project. The steering committee for the museum is headed by U.S. Rep. Jim Clyburn, D-S.C., the first black congressman elected in South Carolina since Reconstruction. "President Clinton's service as honorary chair of our international board reflects our commitment to make this a world-class project," Clyburn said. "We are thrilled he is willing to serve," Charleston Mayor Joseph P. Riley Jr. said. The steering committee will hold its first meeting with the international advisory board early next year, organizers said. A concept for the project developed last year at a planning workshop envisioned a 65,000-square-foot museum. The location has a view of the harbor, where slave ships docked.
