"It’s an interesting experience being a compound minority in America. On the one hand, people make offhanded assumptions about your politics, history, culture, preferences, and familiarity with the law based on your skin color. On the other, there are confident expectations of your tastes, mannerisms, speech patterns, and so on based on your perceived or confirmed sexual orientation. Being a black, gay man in a country that segregated my grandparents and still sanctions a broad array of legal discrimination against me produces precisely the kind of experience that most Americans—being white and straight—will never properly understand, although some do sincerely try.

Before we continue, let’s clarify a few things about me."

Read on to find my take on Jason Collins and what the story says about America.

"This is a sign of the success of terrorism and a few legal activists whose dislike of terrorism often seems eclipsed by their hatred of the government’s legitimate police functions. It is the logic of the TSA checkpoint applied to the whole society:  Because it is politically outrageous to target, monitor or inconvenience specific people,   the only solution is to target, monitor and inconvenience everybody. 

The gun control debate works the same way. Because the government is — often for understandable reasons — ill-equipped, unable or unwilling to do what it takes to stop the lone madman, the “answer” is to inconvenience or infringe upon the rights of millions of law-abiding citizens. When the government fails to focus on real potential terrorists, the result is that we’re all treated at least a bit more like potential terrorists."

This. Is. Amazing. Even amid tragedies, we find ample reason to remember that people are wonderful.

No surprises here. I must say, however, that I am sorely disappointed in people.

"“First of all, 90 percent of people saying they favor background checks is not the same thing as saying they favor Manchin-Toomey,” Podhoretz told POLITICO. “But more importantly, look back at the provisions of the Contract with America in 1994 —- every single one of those provisions had 70 percent support in public surveys. I don’t remember the media taking up those provisions in September and October of 1994 because they ‘represented the will of the people.”"

This is pretty amazing. I hope they're able to expand on this concept and give us any better idea of how American connected works.

Introduction
I'm a proud Army brat and Yalie. I was raised to be a gentleman, like every good Southern boy. I hope to get back to Florida some day. 

"I am one small cog in the vast machinery of everything wrong with this world." And I love it.

Georgetown Auto is, hands down, the best auto care service I have ever encountered. The service was excellent and the most affordable option around. The staff was friendly, patient, and accommodating. Even their driver - Georgetown Auto offers complimentary rides for customers to and from the garage - was charming and sweet. My car is foreign-made and needed a lot of work, so the bill was dauntingly large. But they worked with me to make sure I could get the service I needed at an incomparably reasonable price. After such wonderful service, I cannot recommend this place highly enough. For as long as I'm in the area, this will be my one-stop shop for all my car needs.
