Well, Big Deal!

Sometimes sincere, sometimes sarcastic

Sitting on the kitchen floor with my husband eating refrigerat-ore (the meals we create after mining the fridge) for dinner and listening to Pandora. Doug Kilmer’s bass line from “Spirit in the Sky” fills our ears. Wordlessly, we look into each other’s eyes and start jammin’. Just two people eating dinner and listening to Norman Greenbaum.

“I think about my mother, who, as a little girl, went to segregated schools in Chicago and felt the sting of discrimination. I think about my husband’s grandparents, white folks born and raised right here in Kansas, products themselves of segregation. Good, honest people who helped raise their bi-racial grandson, ignoring those who would criticize that child’s very existence. And then I think about how that child grew up to be the President of the United States, and how today that little girl from Chicago is helping to raise her granddaughters in the White House.”—First Lady Michelle Obama, speaking in Topeka, Kansas on the 60th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education.
