I think we have to face right in the center of the hurricane, if you will, Martin Luther King, Jr.'s foibles and faults.

Michael Eric Dyson

From Borges, those wonderful gaucho stories from which I learned that you can be specific as to a time and place and culture and still have the work resonate with the universal themes of love, honor, duty, betrayal, etc. From Amiri Baraka, I learned that all art is political, although I don't write political plays.
