Nej, "man måste faktiskt inte"



Nordpolen goes Dylan och provocerar TV4-programledarna så till den milda grad att de inte vet om de ska skratta eller skälla ut honom. Läs Johan Wirfälts träffsäkra betraktelse av Pelle Hellströms icke-beteende här.

David Remnick om Obama i The New Yorker igår:
The election of Barack Hussein Obama represents the culmination of the processes predicted by Representative White, forces that accelerated with the rise, in 1955, of the Second Reconstruction––the civil-rights movement––and the election and the appointment thereafter of hundreds of African-Americans to public office. It is cause not for self-congratulation but for celebration nonetheless. There are many things that the Inauguration of Barack Obama will not mean—the complete eradication of racial prejudice; the disappearance of injustices of history still made manifest in the everyday statistics of employment, education, and incarceration––but it can only instill in the American people a sense of possibility and progress.
