A joke is a joke. There's an expression - I don't know if you have it - that's 'adding insult to injury.'
I think television has betrayed the meaning of democratic speech, adding visual chaos to the confusion of voices. What role does silence have in all this noise?

So when you do your family tree and Margaret Cho does hers, and... Wanda Sykes and John Legend... we're adding to the database that scholars can then draw from to generalize about the complexity of the American experience. And that's the contribution that family trees make to broader scholarship.
Henry Louis Gates

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Ralph Waldo Emerson
