    I watched the White House dot gov version of the WHCD. The camera panned to a smiling and laughing Castro brother. Don’t know which one actually but I thought I wonder if it means something.

    Couple of thoughts on the WHCD last night, President Obama was amazing as always and Michelle was absolutely ravishing. I thought Larry Wilmore was funny as hell, he had me howling. I thoroughly enjoyed the way he had the entire room squirming. As far as Wilmore using the n-word, I really don’t know how to feel about it. I can see how many people were upset about it, and a lot more people weren’t upset about it. People who I follow on twitter were all over the place on Wilmore’s usage of the n-word. I remember a few months ago President Obama himself used the n-word on Marc Maron’s pod cast. The n-word is a tricky thing, Richard Pryor made a living using the word, and some people have lost their jobs by using the n-word. If I’m talking to a black guy and he uses the n-word what am I supposed, if I’m talking to a white guy and he uses the n-word what am I supposed to do? Anyway, good morning TOD!

      Hey Don, I agree with you about the mixed feelings generated by Wilmore’s use of the n-word. I don’t think it was necessary other than for shock value. Otherwise, throughout his routine, he told some hard hitting truths in a way as only he could – his comedic brand being what it is.

      I’m thinking about the “use/mention” distinction…… There’s a big difference between a “mention” of the word, like when President Obama referred to it in the Marc Maron interview where he talks about how some people think that if people don’t use that word anymore it’s the end of racism. And then there’s the “use” of the word, where it’s actually being applied to another person.

    Nerdy, you did a great job tweeting the president’s speech. I literally fell asleep waiting for the President to start and woke up early to watch it this morning. Those dinners will never be the same without the cool, comedic talent of our President or the stunning beauty of our FLOTUS. Hillary has a good sense of humor, but she hasn’t got PBO’s gift. If, God forbid, a Republican does this, the room would clear out right after the dessert.

    GM Tod. Cannot believe that I have watched PBO take down the press 8 times – but I’m sure I didn’t miss any – the years have gone just too damn fast.

      Does that mean he won’t live at The White House, host dinners, ride in AF1, ride in a Presdential Limo, fire all the WH staff because his wife will clean it, mow the grass etc..what a prick. The only good thing of a BS president No More WHPC dinners.

    When you awake in awesome splendour its because you watched the president last night at WHCD. Gonna miss him something fierce.

    So yesterday was a hard day for me. To keep from feeling even lower, I decided to go the to pier and watch people fish. And as I was walking along, came this beautiful bird. I don’t know what kind it is, but as if it came to bring me some sunshine, it just sat there right in front and allowed me to take pictures of it. That so made my day. After that I walked the whole pier, talking to the fisher people about their catches, etc. Needless to say, my whole day turned from mush to bliss. I am so glad I went out. See my new friend here in all its glory.

      Wow! Those are great photos and I can see how this lifted your spirits! It’s always a good thing to spend time near the water. It’s so calming and soothing. Glad to hear you’re feeling better, {{{{africa}}}}.
