Watching some classic Chappelle’s Show

Tron Carter’s “Law & Order”


    • That’s Chappelle’s genius: he is able to use comedy to get the the essential core of something true. And comedy is a form of storytelling quite conducive to that. I think Jesus’ parables did a similar thing: he used stories to illustrate something profoundly true. Whether comedy or parables, the use of story can cut through the intellectualizing of debate…..Sort of makes me wonder what kind of a story can cut through the bullshit and help conservative folks realize the kind of suffering they are causing kids at the border…..


      • I don’t use facebook, but my dad does. He posted a picture of Superman (the one from when he was a kid) with a caption describing an alien kid that came to America and wound up defending Truth, Justice, and the American Way.

Consider this post an invitation, an invitation to comment and collaborate, in an open-ended sort of way, so please share your...whatever it is that's on your mind: thoughts, ideas, greetings, angst/irritation, inspiration, confusion, query, rant, salutation, data/research, meme, epigram, exposition or epiphany -- because I'm all about the synergy and solidarity. ~ JE
