"It’s always been one of my great dreams to come and be at a Quaker Friends meeting, even if it meant just sittin’ and bein’ quiet."

What does he think -- that Quaker meetings are held on the *moon*??

This doofus can "be at" a Quaker Meeting next Sunday. I am absolutely sure there's one close enough for him to drive to,if not walk to. And he will be welcomed.

Particularly if they have not read his introduction, with its assumption that Quaker Meetings are either hard to find, or reserved for the elite.

I hadn't known Bayard Rustin was a Quaker. One of the things he exemplifies is, "It's amazing what you can get done if you don't care who gets the credit."
I've been rolling "counter-Reconstruction" on my tongue lately. It seems a good label.
