You know, everybody’s got an opinion.  And I was in one of those hot spots in Belmont, you know.  There was some resistance there.  I can remember when growing up, Sixth Street, I don’t know if you remember much about Sixth Street, but whites on one side of Sixth Street, Blacks on the other side.  Whites never crossed Sixth Street.  Go this way.  Blacks never came up into Belmont.  So that was the separation there.  Like I said, it was a generational thing, and people didn’t know back then.  They didn’t think things through.  They just — different world.
