    If I had the chance to have a conversation -- a candid one -- I would like to ask Dr. Giovanni this: If racism will always be around as long as there are white people then how can we ever end racism?
    I suspect racism in any meaningful sense from white people will only be around if they have disproportionate power and influence (ditto catherine pretty much).
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    Good story!

    That is why he has the lowest approval rating of any president thus far!

    I will try to watch his speech in a while.... until I can't stand it anymore.

    Wonder if his wife will be there? Heard talk of her "box" being inhabited by others.

    Nikki urged us all to get involved and to vote so that The Orange One only gets one term.

    There’s nothing more tedious than a poet with an agenda.

    Yeah, how is that Russian thing going for Trump? Doesn't look good.
