My second cousin
I was thrilled when I had the chance to be Facebook friends with my second cousin, Lyn. The discouraging thing was that it only lasted a few hours and then she was gone. I only had a modest relationship with her that stemmed from genealogy research. Now, having a Facebook presence destroyed that link, and I would only be guessing as to the source of the problem. She is a liberal Democrat from the Flint area and a big Obama supporter, which is fine with me. I am not a liberal Democrat and not a big Obama supporter, so we have a mismatch there. I am also doing some things that some might find offensive, but for which there is an audience. It also interests me, for better or worse. The breach over Facebook is still unfortunate.
