This has been a weekend.
Saturday: how can you not be impressed? I know men and women who marched in DC, I know men and women who marched in L.A. I don’t think it’s remotely coincidental these are the same people who have my back when I drop the comedy and speak with passion about my racial or religious identities. The best compliment I can give is the truest; I was going to privately message everyone I saw on the streets, but I would literally still be sending my praise and support out 24 hours later. You guys all did well. Now on to the next phase…
Sunday: I was writing something completely political this morning when I got the news Yordano Ventura died in a car accident. Forget sports for a minute, 25 is just an extremely young age to die. Prayers to his family, the Royals organization and the Dominican Republic (as Ventura wasn’t the only native ballplayer who died today).
So the wind was taken out of my ‘Sunday post’ sails pretty early. We’ll start this week with some comedy. My Hollywood twin Aziz Ansari hosted SNL this weekend and no surprise he did well. Oscar nominations are announced Tuesday morning; this one definitely got some chuckles out of me.
