Two other things

Two other things from my long conversation with Eleanor about the news.

One of Arie's guests was a black rapper with a shirt on that said "Kids Rule".

Eleanor. read 'Kids" (at not quite 4) and asked what the other word was. When I told her, she said she didn't belong in that.

I asked her why she thought that.

She replied, "I'm white and he's black. He means black kids."

I told her, "No, the shirt means all kids--Black, White, Hispanic, Asian, Middle Eastern, African. Kids are the future. All kids Rule."

She thought about that for a long time and then said, softly, "OK".

Then Joy Reed had three congressional black caucus on her panel, two woman and a man.

Eleanor asked, "Why are there three women and only one man?"

I told her, honestly, "Because we need to listen to women. Men have messed things up. Women will make things right."

She thought for a while and said, "I like that."

Lordy, Lordy, what a child!!!!
