Op-Ed Columnist - Time to Reboot America - NYTimes.com

Frequently our leaders tell us in a very unnuanced way that we are the envy of others in the world. The Friedman piece in the times demonstrates that we could do better in reality than the fantasy chorus of USA #1 etc.

Chris Durang: Alastair Sim's Scrooge, and Apologies

I loved this article by Chris Durang because I truly relate to it. Being by bicultural among other things, I remember learning my era's pop culture along with what would have been my parents' pop culture--had they been born and raised in the United States. As it was I learned what would have been theirs, mine, and the culture that actually was theirs.

The beauty of being a New York born citizen of the United States is the intercultural transactions and connections among people open to them. I'm grateful that my parents --especially my Dad were open to interacting with others and that they did nothing to stifle my inclinations to explore my learning.

Durang's discussion of the Million Dollar Movie among others on mid 50's t.v. brought back the flood of memories of those old black and white flicks I enjoy to this day.

Friendships Lost and Gained

Many years ago, when I first began teaching, I used an essay by a writer whose name I cannot recall at this time. The essay was about friends--childhood, work, school, hobby etc. Some friends you see once in a while and yet when you get together the talk and the affection seems to be the same as when you hung out together regularly.

Their are casual friends, friends for when troubles come, party friends etc.

When there is a sudden unexpected end to communications between friends of long standing the pain is as deep as when someone in the family passes away. I could be paranoid and say I'm to blame for the loss of friends I once considered close. However, I see that humans change and the things that bound us in the past no longer apply. So today I'm saying goodbye to the idea of another friendship in hopes that I can move on and acquire a few more to fill the void.

Knowing me, I probably will and hopefully I will learn more about friendship in future endeavors.

Obama On Grandmother And Campaign: "Bittersweet"

This moment in Senator Obama's life touches me, for it reminds me of how it feels to lose one's parents and loved ones. I'm old enough to consider myself an adult orphan. My parents died long after I had "grown up."

His inclusion of her story during a campaign speech will help keep her story in our consciousness. This is a good thing for we owe our parents and all of our ancestors a great deal for what they contribute to our existence today.

May the Obama family find comfort during the time of this loss.

Memory Lane

I was reading the opinion pages of The NYT when I ran across Frank Rich's latest piece. Guess Who's Coming to Dinner? The title reminded me of the movie to which it refers and my early and lingering impressions of the movie. The only performance worth the price of the ticket was Sidney Poitier's. I remember the overly dramatic and preachy message of the movie. I suppose the overwrought performances by Tracy and Hepburn forever colored my view of them as actors. But here I digress. Rich's analogy of Obama to Poitier is right on. We underestimate people because of the stupid stereotypes we insist on using when discussing people we had placed in a lower rung of the social ladder. To appreciate the comparisons it is good to read Rich's piece. In the end, he helps to shed light on the reasons for Obama's successfully run campaign. Should Senator Obama become President Obama it will be because he is both intelligent and tough and a dreamer/visionary and practical politician.

I hope we can replicate his goals to stop the politics of division and head toward the new century with greater understanding of the capabilities of all people.

Stevens Convicted On All Counts

Stevens Convicted On All Counts

I was raised to respect the elderly. So I am not over joyed at the prospect of this man's prison sentence. I do wish that people did not become so easily corrupted by money and power. Perhaps, Senator Stevens could have avoided today's verdict if he'd practice the religious principles that so many members of his party claim they hold to.

Superstition

I heard that Mr. Obama is superstitious about celebrating the good polling numbers he's receiving. Me too! I don't want to celebrate prematurely about an Obama win. Doing so may very well lead to the kinds of disappointment that I've endured in the past. Also, I find it hard to believe that some last minute dirty tricks won't be played by those in power to attempt to keep their hold on power.

Pitbull mauls McCain?

Alec Baldwin: A Great Actor

Alec Baldwin: A Great Actor
Baldwin touches on some of the reasons I love(d) Paul Newman. Having used the parenthesis I doubt that I really will stop loving the work and memory of such a fine human being. Perhaps Joanne Woodward can share something other than the wonderful things we saw in him. I doubt it. She is a great person, too.

Newman came into my life when I went to a theater in Dobbs Ferry, New York to see Silver Chalice. I later learned it was not Newman's favorite of his films. However, a little girl in a dark theater surrounded by classmates and the nuns who chaperoned us truly fell under the spell--the magic of movies, theaters and great actors. There have been so many of them--actors that is. I have used their works to give me solace in times of sorrow and despair and joy and love of life at other times. So when an important person who contributed to this part of my life passes from the scene, I feel the need to stop, thank them, and continue to appreciate their lives.

Paul Newman Dies At 83

Paul Newman Dies At 83

I've reached a point in my life where some of the best of my girlhood idols are exiting the world stage. Paul Newman was a first "heartthrob" because beyond his good looks, he projected humor, intelligence and later the humanitarian traits for which many came to love him. My heart goes out to his wife Joanne Woodward and their family at this time. Their loss is personal and perhaps very painful. I hope that the knowledge of the love and esteem in which those outside the family held their loved one will sustain them at this time.

I'll post more eulogies on this blog for my own reminder of the brief nature of life.

Bailing Out Financial Firms

There has been a great deal of coverage in the news concerning the impending crash. People who fear it the most are those with lots of power and money and those without any. That is my opinion. Those people involved in creating the mess understand NOW full well the consequences of their deeds. I wish they had thought ahead before their contorted financing schemes led to this moment in US history. Perhaps they will accept--although it seems they do not want to--elimination or reduction of their pay and bonuses. According to the article BailoutFuror in the NYT they are actively lobbying against such cuts and oversight changes.

Those without power fear loss of retirement funds, money market account values and are powerless to effect changes. I called a Senator from my state hoping to make an impression. I hope it works and that reason rather than rash support of ideas from the people who had a good deal to do with this financial debacle will prevail.

How Many Latinos ?

The article by Daniel Cubias ponders the gains Latinos should be making in higher education. While I can't vouch for the numbers Cubias provides the experiences he relates resonate with me. Even in states with high numbers of Latino populations, the numbers of Latinos beyond the first two years of college seem to increase very slightly. This is troubling on many levels--social justice, economy of the states where they live, and issues of perpetually staying on the bottom rungs of the social/cultural/economic ladder.

Thinking Back to the Past

I was born in New York but only partially raised there as my mother took me with her when I was 12 to California. Living in California was hard at first as the lifestyle differed from New York's, the landscape seemed larger--broader and brighter. I mean that literally since the sunshine seemed to blind me during the first days out west. I bring this aspect of my life up because things New York create a feeling of nostalgia for the city. Today I happened upon a piece by New York Times columnist, David Gonzalez. The story hearkened memories of watching baseball with my Dad both at the Yankees' Stadium and on television. It also reawakened the longing I had for times when family was closer at hand and the sounds, rhythms, and taste of life was Puerto Rican. Here's the story I picked up from the ">NYT.

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/09/20/nyregion/20bronx.html?ex=1379649600&en=a8212b206b710e4d&ei=5124&partner=permalink&exprod=permalink


Tia Eufemia

Mi Tia Eufemia--Titi Faye died on July 10, 2008. It was the tenth anniversary of my Mother's death. So following Aunt Faye's death I spent some time in the past. Titi Faye was one of the shiest persons I knew, but that did not undermine the quiet strength she possessed.

My cousin sent us all a the cards put out at funerals with the relevant data about my aunt's life--date of birth, date of death, names of the children she leaves behind. Included among the cards was one that appeared "home" made. It had a lovely photograph of my aunt when she was a young vibrant woman. The other card had a photograph taken shortly after she passed. She was in her bed and looked peacefully asleep. This concept of using the photographs of the deceased on cards meant to be mementos is one with which I have little experience but it is comforting to know that death looks like sleep.

Sharing not only the pictures of my aunt, her daughter, Louisa also shared the sayings of our Grandmother Luisa, whose oral "dichos" were heard in any household headed by her many daughters. Now my Aunt Teanne is the last of these aunts from Abuela Luisa's strand.

Poll Madness: McCain Takes Lead Even As Democrats Out-Register Republicans?


I think I smell rats. Corporate media must be skewing the polling in order to influence people into giving up and not voting. Worse yet, corporate media uses polls to make news to entertain masses with pseudo-scientific sounding data to support any spin they wish to make about the election. I think we should take a deep breath and consider boycotting CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, MSNBC, and any other news outlet that would numb us with useless or ill gotten information. I hate the entertainment aspect of recent news cycles.

The comments of some of the people in this story are reasons why I fear for the fate of our country. I love the USA warts and all, but irrational reasons for supporting some politicians without regard to the good of the nation--that really floors me. I may have to join the well connected and leave this nation if ignorance prevails.

Catching Up

I have been avoiding writing and now am madly trying to make up for my procrastinating ways. I've finished the piece on revision and hope I'll be kinder to myself on my upcoming piece "Dancing on the Edge of Life" from a future book that borders memoirs and academic genres. Of course, the edges of life include all the boundaries created by languages, cultures, and class roles that I observe and experience.

HILLARY CLINTON:

One of the very best speeches by Hillary. The night of the DNC speech truly brought home to me just how talented this woman is. I don't always like the way she presents herself. However, in this moment she transcended all her minor flaws.

Acceptance Speech at Mile High Stadium, Denver Colorado

Students of language will want to listen and study the judicious use of language in this acceptance speech. Obama masterfully counters claims made by the McCain Election committee. He does this point by point but does not present an argumentative posture. Well done. My kind of argument. I wish I had this skill.

Most importantly Mr. Carlin's language was a joy to hear and read. RIP, George.

A reason for uninformed voters. How can we make our government work for our needs if it hides the truth? This is a really old story, yet the lack of focus on the point of the story about government propaganda is hidden by attending to stories about the messenger.

As a woman, I like to see other women succeed and demonstrate their strong and good characters in the work they do. I realize that strong and good are subjective judgments but in the piece by Dawn Teo below many of us can see what I mean. Also the quoted material in the title of the piece points to what I mean. If we wait until all dangers are past and we are completely safe before taking action on work that needs doing, well, we'll all be in a vast wasteland littered with conditions that are truly "unfixable." So let us have the strength to hope and work for better times and social progress.

Alice Walker on Obama | Views | TheRoot.com

I haven't hear Alice Walker's beautiful voice in a long time. Recently a good friend forwarded the link to a story Ms Walker wrote for The Root online journal and once again I wept. This time in the good way that we can weep when the connection is deep and good. Our lives matter and our connections remain more important than the particular things that "seem" to project deep divisions and differences. I cannot have Ms Walker's experiences but I can relate to them in ways that are meaningful to me and to any work I choose to do with other women of color. Bell Hooks once wrote that too often the feminisms we encounter in academia do not lend themselves to the realities in the lives of women of color. She was right and Walker's sharing is another way of showing ways of working with the distinctions and more importantly making connections with one another.

I hope again and have begun to work for the "greater" good by working with like minded people in my corner of the world. Walker and other women inspire the hope as does the young man who seems to resonate the ideas and words of heroes of younger years. So Walker's metaphor of the goddess who sees three views is excellent for those of us who need to hope for the future, recall the past and work in the present.

Thinking of the Founders (Fathers and Mothers) of the United States

There is a new mini-series on HBO concerning John Adams. I like to study history and mind most of the information already known to me except for the relationship between John and his wife, Abigail. She was wise and he fortunate to have her for a life's partner. That said, I would like to go to the thought derived from a statement by Jefferson. Given the recent history of our nation, perhaps it would be wise to challenge more forcefully those elected to represent us to actually take legal actions against the two leaders of the government residing on Pennsylvania Avenue.

Obama's brilliant bad speech - Los Angeles Times

Obama's brilliant bad speech - Los Angeles Times

I had never read material by Gregory Rodriguez before this morning's piece in the Los Angles Times. I agree with most of what he has to say but think his last two paragraphs which contain a summary of his take on Obama's speech also misses the mark that he accuses Obama of missing.

No one person can do justice to the topic. Identity politics involves many complex contributing factors. While we may not need a large physical movement to grant people their civic rights, we do need to acknowledge that too many people in this large country have no clue what it means to be a "mongrel" USAmerican (as in the title of Rodriguez' book) or what many of us refer to as mestizaje.

I agree that transcending race is nearly impossible, my thesis would be a call to learn about as many groups within our society so as to have more productive conversations that lead to better public policy on social issues.

Richardson's Endorsement of Obama

An image of Latinos and African Americans in competition has kept people from realizing that both groups need one another. It was true during the days of Martin Luther King, Jr. and it is true today. So it is pleasing to me to see and hear this wonderful endorsement of Barack Obama by Governor Bill Richardson. Dos buenos hombres.

Obuscation in Public Discourse

Much has been made of the "terrible" words spoken by Obama's minister and mentor during the past week.

This link could be a teaching moment for all of us to beware of the snippets of information that are used for sensationalism in place of information. For to provide entertainment should not be the mission of any responsible news network.

The Clintons, a horror film that never ends | Andrew Sullivan - Times Online

This has been a most interesting time for me because all manner of writers from disparate backgrounds writing in many genres reveal their responses t0 the Clinton/Obama run for the presidency of the United States of America. Despite my disagreement with some on other issues we all are experiencing the same dread. I can only wonder at the selfish perserverence that drives the Clinton clan. Do we really want republican light as our president? I don't think so. At least progressive Democrats do not want the push to the center that turns us into republicans. Yet many conservative position are of benefit to the country and Obama could easily bring such public policy into fruition without the drama that seems to be part of th Clinton clan baggage.

For his article, I thank Andrew Sullivan

This post demonstrates the insincerity I've previously overlooked. The insincerity may be widespread in political life, but the Clintons really know how to dress it up, take it for a ride, and twirl it around for a second go around. I'm increasingly discouraged by the fact that the first woman with a real shot at the presidency has become just like the boys.

West on MLK

A speech by Dr. Cornell West on Dr. King.


Thursday, February 28, 2008

William F Buckley, Jr.

My family taught me stories but public speakers introduced me to a new world of ideas.

When I was a youngster one of the first public intellectuals to capture my young mind was Mr.Buckley. His presentation of an argument that is his delivery was so alien from the ways that people in my family and amongst members of my class spoke as to totally beguile me. That was a good thing because even when I disagreed with this man's ideas I thought about what he meant and thinking influenced my own philosophy of government and citizens. I find, in retrospect, that Buckley's rhetoric was as influential in its way as Dr. King, JFK, RFK and other speakers of the time.

How it was that a Puerto Rican American girl fell in love with language is the result of her access to television and radio where all these people and others were able to speak, discuss, and engage with thoughts using wonderful language and importantly to me civility. It is indeed a great loss to our country that the ability to engage people's minds has deteriorated to appealing to people's fears. Truly this is deplorable and in sharp contrast to the ideals embodied in the works of the aforementioned people. Perhaps a little nostalgia can get us to draw from the best of USAmerican people from the past.

RIP, Mr. Buckley.
