3. There’s a fella I see every few days that’s reading a well-loved hardback copy of Roots by Alex Haley. I remember loving that book when I was young (moving! racey! race-y! angry! strong!) — it’s fun to see someone carrying such an important memory of mine, and important work, around.
4. Friday Eye Candy on MamaPop. Sometimes you just need a little sugah.
