My sister flew into BWI yesterday evening to provide me a little bit of relief. After a trip to CostCo and some pizza and Very Berry Sundae, Karol and Patrick were very ready for bed. But Patrick couldn't sleep before a little cuddling with his godmother, of course! Here's a pic she took on her phone. Doesn't Pat look thrilled to be staying up late with Aunt Toni?
As for me, I was up late working on a paper and watching The Great Debater (Denzel Washington) with Toni. Not a bad movie, but still one of those didactic racial-issue movies I would definitely expect to see from an Oprah/Denzel collaboration.
It made me wonder at the end of the movie: was the Harvard-Wiley debate staged for political purposes? I know none of the history, and have no desire to research it, but I would not be surprised at all if it was a politically constructed event the way that Rosa Parks' bus move was.
