Get out and see the world.


     Barack Obama was in Indiana the other day, and spoke of himself as "someone who has little pieces of America all in me". A great, evocative line. 
     Here's a fine column by Richard Cohen of the NY Times. I hope Obama hits BACK at the hit machine--HARD!--and brags about the "little pieces of the WORLD" that have helped form him. 
     Those little pieces stick out of a lot of Americans, so frame them as a strength, and never run, never hide.
     Go South Side on 'em!

Multiculturalism is not a vulgar word and neither should it be. Jack Rabbit, my wife, my daughter, and I have been a multicultural family for the last five years. My wife is Guatemalan, my daughter is African-American and Guatemalan, and I a mixed mutt myself with caucasian, African American, and suspected Native American blood coursing through my veins.
The world is a beautiful place. Get out and see it, experience it, taste it--because once you do, you will realize, that we are more alike than we are different.
