A Vision For the Future

Walking into Beyond Bread a little while ago, Skylar and I were looking at the headlines on the newspapers for sale out front. For once, everything above the fold was good and appropriate for all ages. We talked about the relationship between Congress and the President afterwards. "Maybe the Democrats can win next time. I think they should choose a darker-skinned woman to run for President. People would like something different for a change. They're tired of lighter-skinned men. An African-American would be perfect."
