Quote of the Day

QUOTE OF THE DAY….From Barack Obama, in 1995, telling a story about the first time his grandmother came to Chicago to meet his in-laws:

My grandmother walks in, it’s all black people in the room, she’s the only white person there except for my mother, and she’s feeling a little nervous and a little out of place. And she suddenly sees this table set with fried chicken, and succotash, and a jello mold, and suddenly she realizes that she has a culture that she’s sharing with all these people.

Ah, the healing balm of Jell-O™. It really does bring us all together.
