A June Midweek: History and Stuff

TV critic Diane Werts plugs about Turner Classic Movie Channel’s “Race and Hollywood: Asian Images in Film.” I’m going to have to try to check some of this out (I mean, I actually do have cable now; you’d think I’d use it more than checking a bit of CNN and SciFi and Food Network stuff).

June’s starting out to be pretty interesting: we’re living in history, as Barack Obama is the Democratic nominee. No matter what happens, this says a lot that a white woman and a black (or biracial) man can get this far and maybe even farther in this country and the campaign to lead it.
