the Pres said his first political act was involvement in protests against apartheid. I was slightly too young to know what to do at that point but I vividly remember the "shanties" set up on college campuses and being impressed. I think these protests contributed to the eventual wave of change.

My first political activity was stuffing envelopes for McGovern. It happened to be in the Watergate building just a few weeks after the plumbers were arrested. When 11-year-old me and my 13-year-old sister were entering the building, a big security guard looked down at us and said, in a mock scary voice, "Y'all don't put any bugs in there!"

He was a major McGovern guy in Nebraska. His oldest brother was on the list too.

There were two lists. The A list were heavy hitters. That's the list Dan Schorr was handed on the air. Dad's not on that list. My family were on the longer B list.

By the US gov't's logic, in putting Mandela on the terrorist list, wouldn't the colonialists of 1775, in using violence against the state, also be terrorists? So we are a nation founded by terrorists. Got it.

Also MEV = YES.
Avatar    Fri. 12/6/13 10:02am kat330:

@Holly: Hear, here! It sometimes boggles my mind when I think where we were -- or at least where we SEEMED to be -- in the late '60s, early '70s, and how I imagined humanity would evolve from that point forward. Definite backslipping. But, ya know, I'm an agnostic (bordering on atheism), but the current Pontiff is impressing my mightily. I have a post on Tumblr hoping for "Trickle Down Morality" discussing Francis' recent speeches.

@Kat330 - as a fellow agnostic/maybe atheist/maybe pagan/raised in the bosom of a deeply christian (congregationialist) household I feel you! As far as popes go, this one rocks. BUT he still has issues. BUT he's by far the best one I've ever seen.
Avatar Fri. 12/6/13 10:11am Jeff Golick:

@kat: This --> "those AWFUL, invasive 'proper posture' photos we women were forced to take in our underwear!" --- sounds like it's awaiting some kind of New Yorker-esque expose. Had no idea!

@Jeff: Seriously?! Thought perhaps I read somewhere -- maybe in an old BAM, which I no longer get after moving around so many times -- that is WAS exposed and eliminated. I have little doubt that some pervy dons were circulating some of those photos among themselves. :,

Avatar    Fri. 12/6/13 10:46am kat330:

The pretext for them was, in our gym class requirement, these pictures would be graded on our posture and given pointers on what we need to have better posture. I remember being VERY uncomfortable and unhappy about it all, and it certainly was one factor in quitting Brown after only a year.

But we also had those pamphlets of photos of all the freshman girls and guys that circulated around campus and, as I understand it, became the inspiration for Facebook from that being done at Harvard.

This Dinah track is heavily suggestive of Elaine Stritch singing "Here's to the Ladies Who Lunch" in Company.

@Jeff Golick
You can Google and find photos of Mandela in a Yankee cap and jacket. At least there's this: Steinbrenner picked up the tab for Mandela's evening at Yankee Stadium. I'm convinced his wearing the pinstripe paraphernalia is what moved The Boss to do so.

Avatar Fri. 12/6/13 11:15am glenn:

I came home from work, sat down in my favourite chair, turned on the TV, and said to my girlfriend, "Quick! Bring me a beer before it starts!"

She looked a little puzzled, but brought me a beer.

When I finished it, I said, "Quick! Bring me another beer! It's gonna start!"

This time she looked a little angry, but brought me a beer.

When it was gone, I said, "Quickly! Another beer! It's gonna start any second!"

"That's it!" She blew her top. "You bastard! You waltz in here, flop your fat ass down, don't even say hello to me and then expect me to run around like your slave! Don't you realise that I cook and clean and wash and iron all day long?"

I sighed. "Oh sh!t. It's started...."

Avatar Fri. 12/6/13 11:21am Doug Schulkind:

From a piece in today's NY Times about Mandela's visit to New York:

"The Yankee Stadium appearance took Mr. Mandela to the home of what was then one of the worst teams in baseball. The Yankees were in last place in the American League East after losing almost twice as many games as they had won. But they were on a road trip that week.

“Somebody had Yankee Stadium for several days and gave us one of the days, equipment and all,” Mr. Dinkins recalled. “I’m told when I put the Yankee cap and jacket around his shoulder and he said, ‘I am a Yankee,’ Steinbrenner was so pleased he called the next day and said, ‘There’ll be no charge.’”

By the way, the artist who had booked Yankee Stadium for several days and relinquished one for the Mandela? It was Billy Joel.

Yes. I have been here most of the time. I listen at work, and fortunatly I do IT work, so most communication is by using an instant message application and email, so I can listen in on my headphones, while getting all kinds of things done. This has been a rather busy morning, so I was able to listen, but not post.

Ok, two (belated) things:
(1) If Billy Joel had already booked the gig, why would there be an additional change for the Boss to waive?
(2) Do I have to like Billy Joel now? (Unless he gave up the stadium and the bill to the city?)
