I (Really, Really Really) Hate Thieves!!

It's been a heck of a week so far.. just the other afternoon, I went to a local black-culture bookstore for a book-signing/lecture from Dr. Michael Eric Dyson-- his new book is [b]"Know What I Mean?"[/b] a collection of his take on current (and historical) controversies in hip hop..

I really enjoyed his presentation, but I forgot to mention the HUDLIN FORUM when I got to talk with him briefly (D'oh!).. so after it was over, I was feeling pretty good, until I started my truck and I hear these ungodly sounds coming from it.. ARRRRRRRRRRRGHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!.. So I make it to the dealership/service center I frequent, and it turns out some knucklehead(s) used some kinda tool to slice off damn near my entire catalytic converter from the underside of the truck, presumably to sell the metal for some quick cash.. (In broad daylight, near a major thoroughfare, and... sigh...)

Also at the bookstore I picked up Black Men and Depression, by John Head.. I think I'm going to need it..
