too funny


on a more cereal note, in today's edition of the nyt online, sarah vowell pens a beautiful op-ed about the legacy of MLK, her own evangelical history and her hope that our next president follows in at least a few of MLK's steps. if you have a moment, please take the time to read radical love gets a holiday. i think it is one of the best short pieces i've read in years.

the editor in me, always learning and checking facts, actually went to the online dictionary to check the meaning of your use of "cereal" here. i didn't get it, so i went over to ask rick if he had ever heard the word used as an adjective; i didn't figure out what you were trying to mean until i actually said the phrase "on a more cereal note" out loud...

thanks for sharing that article. i love sarah vowell, but she is so smart that some of her beautifully written sentences go right over my head.
