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.
Thanks Guillaume! Yes, I agree, great minds do think alike. Obama 2012!
Hey, I like this writing. keep it up.
