When you panic tonight

Finally someone has stepped up and made a reasonable statement about Black History Month. In an interview for 60 Minutes Morgan Freeman stated that he was tired of the idea of a month dedicated to Black History. He believes (as do I) that there should not simply be one month devoted to it, rather that it should be a part of American History in general. The episode of 60 Minutes will air Sunday night and you can read the article here.

I'm glad to see a black man step forward and say these things, because they're the same things I've thought for a while, but had to keep under wraps at the risk of sounding like a racist.

you're not a racist.. you're a third base-ist!

that's right. you used to always try to take our relationship to "third base" when i was only ready emotionally to take it to second.
