28 October 2008

Overheard on NPR this afternoon: "Rosa sat so Martin could walk. Martin walked so Barack could run. Barack ran so our children could fly."
I heard that too and immediately looked it up! What a great saying.

Apparently Beyonce has it on a shirt...I haven't had time to look for the shirt yet.

...over Iran. Launching tomahawks.

I'm sorry, but the schmaltz level of this election has just passed a point.

Fight! Fight! Fight!
i remain underexposed to the pros and wary of the cons.

Chiming back in to say what a beautiful, potent sentiment this really is (about the Barack and the kids flying, I mean). I think I'm already so emotional that for a second I just had to put the snark hat on to keep the tears from flowing again.

I'm gonna be a mess next week

Talking of NPR, I listened to This American Life. Now I'm all worried about Pennsylvania. And the Bradley Effect.
