How a white man became black overnight

By Michael E. Ross

“I caught a glimpse of myself in a mirror, and it was as if I’d changed in that moment from white to black.”

Fosberg’s initial discovery led to others: He had a great-great grandfather who was one of the black Union Civil War soldiers in the 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry regiment, the soldiers celebrated in the 1989 film Glory. Read More.

What did you think of the Superbowl Halftime Show? I really enjoyed Tonight’s Gonna Be a Goodnight!  That is on my walking music playlist.  In this piece, “Contemplations of Super Bowl halftime,” Greg Johnson of KJLH reminds of us other memorable half time shows.  It is worth the click to see Michael Jackson’s from 1993:

Time to Feel Good:  Natalie from Britain’s Got Talent.  Over 20 million views!

Today we will play an interview between Robert Scoble and MC Hammer (Yes, it’s  Hammertime!)  YOu can get a scoop and hear it here: Robert Scoble (or the Scobleizer) is one to follow on because he posts interviews through Cinchcast  from some pretty high places!


Computers are moving forward in leaps and bounds, but so is the use of phones!  I got a tweet from Brother Jesse to call into a national call in  talking about the upcoming  Savior’s Day and I, along with thousands, heard what sounded like a talk show with the Minister on as a guest.  This week I received phone calls for town hall meetings, reminders to send in my absentee ballot and more. One company that does it is SB Strategies at 310-294-9537.
