Just finished reading a brief interview with Zinn over at counterpunch.org. I like that old guy. I haven't read A People's History but I did listen to a few celebrities read from it at democracynow.org. Marissa Tomei as Cindy Sheehan was very good, so was Kerry Washington (I think she read Harriet Tubman, or was it Sojourner Truth?). After I finish James Loewen's Sundown Towns I want to read Dave Zirin's What's My Name, Fool? Sports and Resistance in the United States. I heard Zirin mention...

Many years ago I worked in this store and many celebs would come through. I spoke to some of them and got a few autographs. Most memorable was talking to and getting the autograph of Phyllis Hyman . Michael Eric Dyson was my professor. Got him to sign one of his books. Went to elementary, junior high, and high school with Marissa Tomei , but never really knew her. However, she and my sister were friends from elementary through high school. Sat on Jackie Wilson's lap as a baby. (Anybody got a...

I'm not sure why, but I've had this asked of me as well. In one such instance this guy asked: "You from England?" [WTF?]. I said, "No. Brooklyn." Recently, on the phone someone didn't think that I had a "Brooklyn" accent. She thought my so called accent was hard to discern. (What? Am I supposed to sound like Marissa Tomei in "My Cousin Vinny?") Anyway.... I think my biggest quirk is my love of watches.
