  1. Really enjoyed your review of Obama’s speech. I did see the part with Wanda Sykes and subsequent media frenzy about Rush L. and his kidneys.

    I also did not know that you were a faculty member in the department of African-American studies. Does that mean you serve as a type of board member or do you teach classes regarding African-Amercian studies?

    This is my first ever comment on a blog. How cool is this.

    Love, Mom
