Hey, Man, It's The '90s

You may already know this: Thanksgiving=Better Than Birthdays!

But did you know this: L.L. Cool J=Secret Pro-Life Activist?

I was never ghost
When lives was on the line
Confusion in ya mind
Runnin outta time
Drama of all kind
But theres faith in our mind
We spiritually inclined

(Hush by L.L. Cool J)

Speaking of unaborted black children, on Friday, during Thanksgiving II, Mémé #3116 busted out, a propos of absolutely nothing: "How are you going to tell me that Little Black Sambo isn't just a beautiful children's story? It's not racist!" Now, if you know Mémé #3116, you know that this is not totally shocking. She is the one who used to sit with me in the lobby of a restaurant and point at fat people and say, "Oooh, look at that one, what do you think? Triple Oinker?" But it really came out of absolutely nowhere. Like, no one was talking about race relations, or racism, or even children's stories. But while everyone gave her a funny look, I was all, "You're missing the point, people. What's really at issue here is not whether Little Black Sambo is or is not racist, but rather why people think a horribly racist children's story can't also be beautiful."

Anyway, McCullen informed me this weekend that we are apparently hosting the New Year's Eve party, and I'm already disappointed. Sorry, everyone, that our party wasn't better when it happens in the future!
