The problem of the twentieth century is the problem of the color line.
W. E. B. Du Bois
You don't need a pickup line. Just glance at a woman from across the room. Glance - don't stare.
The world is full of people who have dreams of playing at Carnegie Hall, of running a marathon, and of owning their own business. The difference between the people who make it across the finish line and everyone else is one simple thing: an action plan.
Jazz music is America's past and its potential, summed up and sanctified and accessible to anybody who learns to listen to, feel, and understand it. The music can connect us to our earlier selves and to our better selves-to-come. It can remind us of where we fit on the time line of human achievement, an ultimate value of art.
Inflation is taking up the poverty line, and poverty is not just economic but defined by way of health and education.
The bottom line in the Christian life is obedience and most people don't even like the word.
Don't judge me. You wanna judge me, put on a black gown and get a gavel. Get in line with the rest of them that's about to judge me. I got court dates every other month. It's me against the world - that's how I feel.
