So, in my rather collegiate attempts recently (largely successful) to procrastinate, I did finally, once and for all, get the story on my red hair. Or … actually I just perused the article on this topic on Wikipedia, which of course may or may not be full of it. I was shocked a little and amused that they noted Monsiuer Khan as a(n) historical redhead (a la “historical babes” also in Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure). Word.
I would direct your attention to this recent lecture by the so-appealing-nowadays “former next president of the United States,” as he runs around and around this crazy-important set of issues. So, did you actually see An Inconvenient Truth ?
Oh, and it looks as though MIT/Sloan has had smart things to say about this recently too, from a … hmm, business perspective. Shocking. And (yet) enlightening, too. Why is this not surprising?
This one stands for itself: Jay Leno stooping to what might be new lows, though I don’t really know cuz I try not to watch. WTF?
Last week, Barack Obama gave us an important personal statement on his own and America’s multi-racism, “A More Perfect Union.” Candidate Obama played his own “race card” — masterfully, to my view, and certainly provocatively.
And at least one smart-guy Stanford law professor has a similar sense to mine, that the speech represents notes toward a “way through” the complex difficulties of race in America. Best of luck and fortitude to us all.
Just getting settled in here at mygraymatters.net, where I hope to “log” some useful ruminations, considerations, reflections, conjunctions and junctions, likely often posted mid-night. Please do feel you must comment on any and all — I appreciate it. Suggestions/recommendations in the categories I’ve created are always welcome, too.
