One of my favorite Boondocks strips features Riley telling Huey about missing a class question that even he felt embarrassed about. The question was "which Black political leader said 'turn the other cheek'", and Riley was given the hint "King."
"I thought, how many 'King's' could there be?"
"I know, but Rodney King?"
Last night, I had that same feeling when discussing over dinner whether "Gonzalez was going to go." My brother perks up and asks, "Elian Gonzalez?"
At the airport today, the TV was showing a Bush press conference. My brother looked over and asked "who's that?"
My brother, FYI, is 17 years old and will be attending the University of Virginia (Engineering School) next fall.
