The Chinese have known the air purifying qualities of these plants for CENTURIES!
There's even a feng shui way to place them throughout the house.

Books / Re: What are we reading?

A friend recommended SuperFreakonomics, so I picked that up on Audio the other day.  I also got Daniel Pink's, Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us. 

The book I'm most excited about is Ed Dwight's (signed) memoir, Soaring on the Wings of a Dream.  The diminutive Ed Dwight was NASA's first Black astronaut candidate during the Kennedy administration.   The intriguing thing is that I've admired his incredible artwork for years and only recently discovered his significant connections to NASA and other programs and an eclectic array of friends we have in common. 

I look forward to finally meeting this fascinating man this summer!

The "excessive usage" That's bullsh*t. Jeez I hate to go there but this "PC" thing that many have a tendency to whine about fits the bill here.


Who the hell are these niggaz sitting up in the cinema COUNTING n-words?

For every Black man who’s willing to saddle up, there’s a Black woman eager to get up on that pony and ride with him.

So much venom and vitriol being spewed about the net over this polarizing film.
Question to the producer:  Did y'all anticipate such controversy?

My favorite line so far, from one of ATL's self-proclaimed conscious/intellectuals,
  "Now, if Madea were hanged in Django, maybe I'd go see it".

Spike is either grossly misinformed......OR he is part of theclever machine that is helping to make this movie a hit.
Anyone that listens to the naysayers rant about excessive use of the N-word is a fool.  There was never a time in the film that the word was inappropriate.

If anything, the only thing that I considered slightly off, was Django's extensive vocabulary.  I mean....for a field slave, he knew a LOT of multi-syllable words that were unlikely to be used by the un-educated overseers.

I saw Django with my mom.  It's rare that we like the same movies.  Django, she loved as much as I did.  She was actually cheering with the rest of the audience!  In the car on the way home, she wondered aloud about the "coincidental" timing of Roots on BET just before the opening of Django.
She'd been angry at white folks all week.  Now I reckon she's just gonna laugh at them.
