Mary Bowser, former slave of the Van Lew family, infiltrated the Confederacy by working as a servant in the household of Jefferson Davis.

Burn them. Burn them all. No one would care.
I had to report sexual harassment once. It turns out that employee had harassed several other women, who had never reported anything, and it wasn’t until my complaint was filed that there was an investigation into his conduct.

"You have terrible taste"
"Just exercise and eat less!"
"Thats really slutty"
"I love Robin Thicke!"
