Why I have opened the window!

Amerykah has turned a corner and we should all turn with it. I have thoughts ideas and suggestions but I also have patience and desire for us to be whole and one. I have been speaking a lot lately of the human condition and the generations of Black Americans. i will entertain any and all conversation as long as we can be respectful and grown up. Let the healing begin......

You Go Girl!!!!!!!! Speak that word!!!!!!!!

So about a year ago the “Daddys” got me hooked on this show called “Countdown with Keith Olbermann” on MSNBC.

Not one to watch the news because it was so depressing Countdown was a cool breath of fresh air. Mostly political with just enough human interest thrown in, I have found myself looking forward to the six foot six host and his expensive clothing allowance. But this blog is not about the well dressed dapper intelligent Keith, it is about his some time stand in gal pal Rachel Maddows.

Rachel Maddows is host of the aptly named “Rachel Maddows show” on Air America radio and when Keith goes fishing she sits in on Countdown. I have watched Rachel as she has gone from a Keith stand in using his same inflections to tell a story to Rachel the woman with her own style. Well today her own style paid off as it was announced that she will host a as of yet unnamed show on MSNBC that will follow “Countdown”.

So to Rachel I say congratulations girlfriend!!!!! I look forward to your fist day 09/08/2008.

Olbermann and Maddow are my favs too. I've noticed that they seemed to be 'grooming' her lately and I thought that it was to take over the show. I prayed it wasn't. As much as I LOVE her, Countdown needs Keith -- nobody else can do it.

Can't wait to see her own style show though. I'm actually giddy with anticipation. [must be getting old]
