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......

Tuesdays Invitation!

Rachel Maddow was raised in Castro Valley, California. She is a radio show and political television host best known for the shows named after her.

About two years ago I got hooked on “Countdown with Keith Olbermann”. The show presented news in a way that was both instructional and entertaining and it became a regular staple in my nightly watching. One night Keith was on vacation and I was introduced to a very plucky and nervous Rachel Maddow. She was a little shaky and she tried a little too hard to be “Keith” but I was endeared to her just the same. As time went on and she made more guest appearances she found her own footing and her own path, I am happy it was televised and I was along for the ride. A few of her endearing qualities is that first all this woman is wicked smart. I mean nobody calls her Dr. Maddow but, they probably should, she is a Rhode Scholar and has earned a doctorate in Political Science from the University of Oxford. What I really love about her is that she is a self proclaimed geek and keeps by her bedside a stack of comic books. Oh yeah, and she is openly gay.

So Rachel Maddow please accept this invitation to the Dinner party of the year. Your opinion, your geekiness, and your smarts are more than welcome!
