Oh, I’m not surprised. I would go so far as to say that Santorum would support apartheid today if someone proposed it.
I went to see my friend in a play (technically, she was in one of six 10-minute shorts) and it was fun! Super avant-garde (4/6 were great, so that’s good!), but I came away with a revelation: good theatre involves both change and interaction.
Also I don’t think I’ve been around that high a concentration of hipsters since graduating. The winner was this dude with an African hat, a tartan cape/coat, and checkered pants. I called him “The Last King of Scotland.”
“Rolihlahla Nelson Dahlibunga “Madiba” Mandela, who dedicated 48 years of his life to toppling South Africa’s racist Apartheid regime, died today. He was 95. Perhaps identifying the quality in his newborn son, or prophesying it, Nkosi Mandela named him “Rolihlahla” which in the Xhosa language literally means “pulling the branch of a tree”, or, colloquially, “troublemaker.” It was upon his enrollment in primary school that Rolihlahla’s teacher, in accordance with the custom to give schoolchildren “Christian” names, named the boy “Nelson” which means “son of the champion” and “conqueror of the people.” The troublemaker, champion, and founder of the council who was called “Madiba” after his Xhosa clan now rests in peace, having lived up to his name.”—http://www.ebony.com/news-views/nelson-mandela-1918-2013-455#axzz2mfDz8Cle (via nanaekuawriter)
