Brin heads home today, which means the traditional farewell meal of...Papa John's.
Traditional dinner...is traditional.
The headline says it all:
In 1968, a white firefighter saved a black baby girl, touching the heart of a divided city. The two did not meet again. Until yesterday.
If we have truly transcended race by electing Barack Obama President, why are we still referring to his race (as in, "the first black President")? If it doesn't matter - and it shouldn't - why keep bringing it up?
Besides, he's the same race as all of us - human.
Today's title was recorded by this guy.
You probably remember him for this song.
Shower's free, and food is on its way.
Be seeing you.
