Quote of the Day

"It's a new time. And this is a new America. And we got to start showing the face of the new America, and stop showing the face of the old America, which is putting our nose in other people's business, other wars, spending billions of dollars on - on - on fighting, and not spending billions of dollars on rebuilding our nation, which needs education, health care and things like that.

And - and, you know - and - and it`s going to take - I feel it's going to take a black president to - to make a change like that. It's going to take a black president to stand up, that has gone through all of that pain and - and - and heartache and - and - and turmoil in their lives and struggled to be able to - to set things right and balance the world out. Or - I mean, that - or, you know - or a woman president.

We - we - we need a change in America."

- Sean Combs, a.k.a. Puffy, a.k.a. P. Diddy, in an interview on CNN's Showbiz Tonight
It's going to take a lot more than a Black President (Colin Powell?) or a woman President (Hillary Clinton?) to change things in this country. But the fact is that Diddy is many orders of magnitude more influential than I, so when someone like him starts speaking out about the need for change, and not just by taking easy and obvious shots against the incumbent Present, it's worth taking note of.
