Deafening silence

After watching Saddam Hussein call President Bush the "real criminal" on CNN yesterday, I happened to afford the opportunity to watch the entire documentary Fahrenheit 9/11 while at the barbershop today. (Bootlegging at it's best...)

I'm speechless.

And just when I thought I could utter a simple monosyllabic word, Bill Cosby silenced me again by his commentary at the Rainbow/PUSH Coalition & Citizenship Education Fund's Annual Conference.

I think I've swallowed my tongue.

I'm on my way to see Fahrenheit 911 now. I'm sure i'll have much to say when i'm done viewing it.

As for Bill Cosby, i'm of the mind that we are just being reminded that he is not Cliff Huxtable, not merely a stand-up comedian. And he is an Ed.D., after all. Some of his comments of late seem to be in keeping with that role. Are they intolerant and lacking in some analysis of racism and economic oppression? Yup. But Bill (or Jesse) isn't the only one thinking those things.

Yes- F911 was good... honestly, I expected something a little more... revelational. LOL. Like nothing he said really made my jaw hit my kneecap... but it really just emphasized things that came as no surprise to me.
