Blogue d'un québécois expatrié en Angleterre. Comme toute forme d'autobiographie est constituée d'une large part de fiction, j'ai décidé de nommer le blogue Vraie Fiction.

Two things I share with President Obama
It is the 4th of July, Independence Day, so first I want to wish a happy 4th of July to all my American readers. Then, as the USA are celebrated today, I thought I would mention here that I share two things with President Obama. I am not making this up. We both read The Way Home by George Pelecanos (proof here). And we both are fans of The Wire. Better still, his favourite character is Omar Little. And Omar is one of my favourite characters on the show. I don't consider Obama to be the greatest president of all time, but I like him as a person, and I find him both intelligent and educated, two qualities politicians, or indeed public figures, rarely have. So I am glad I share this with him. It is not like sharing things with, say, the pope. That freaked me out. Now, what I can say about our similar tastes? Great minds think alike.
