Listening to an old This American Life program (you can download them online) called Harold. It's about the first black man to serve as governor, in Chicago. It gives a little bit of history about Democracy in our country that gives me hope for Obama. Harold was "fairer than fair" and gradually began to win over racist whites by being a plain old human being, by doing his job, by really being fair. When he said it was "our turn", it really was. I am getting ready to step up myself, and claim a turn. Harold was a hero of Obama's, and just knowing this bit of history and knowing that Obama is aware of it gives me hope. It is our turn.

Go get the link yourself if you care.
I also recommend the TAL program on testosterone.

I listened to that one a while back. It was good. I couldn't believe somebody had the balls to call him up and ask if they should install vines so he could swing from them. Where do people get off?

It's amazing just how vicious and bigoted people can be.... My uncle is like that. It's a real challenge to have an honest conversation with him without triggering a diatribe against one population or another....he is mired in fear and suspicion. I don't know if he will ever escape it.
