My driver makes some solid points — particularly that our conversation is futile, and that those assholes held slaves. Which gets me thinking about the forefathers I salute, from Tupac, Lenny Bruce, and George Carlin to Fiorello LaGuardia and Martin Luther King Jr. Giants like those guys stirred this melting pot, dreaming of a day when all of God's children, white and black, green and Jersey orange, would be judged by the content on their placards. No doubt my heroes were all a bit insane, but only so the rest of us could have the sort of harmony and balance that I found in Washington.
