So a while ago I was either watching a video on youtube or reading an article where someone was quoting Sojourner Truth, and I don't even remember what the thing was, but in the comments section someone had written "look up her picture, she was OLD" and then they said something...

This past weekend I went to WesterCon 68 in San Diego.
