“. . . it changes everything. It changes the world.”
At the end of September, the Anonymous Other invited me to the New York
Public Library to hear Spike Lee and James McBride speak .
When the conversation turned to politics, Lee refused the moderator’s
conditional sentence again and again, and said, “ When Barack
Obama is elected, people can expect miracles. He’s going to inherit,
he’s going to have the worst mess on his hands of any president in
a long, long time . . . To me, it changes everything. It
changes the world. . . . Even with their shenanigans, they
won’t be able to steal this one. ”
Time to start working on the changes.
