Well! February is Black History Month. I don't have anything to say about that, but Colbert King does. He is a Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist for the Washington Post. He is the deputy editor of the Post's editorial page. Colbert King is a black man, he's a Democrat, he's a liberal and he's an avid supporter of Barack Obama. Here are his words as printed in the Washington Post:

"Here we are, another Black History Month: time to lionize great black men and women of the past. Twenty-eight days to praise the first African American to do this and the first African American who did that. Another month of looking back with pride - as we ignore the calamity in our midst."

A calamity because, according to some recent posts (Washington Post and Demonstrate to Victory), "In 1950, nearly 80 percent of black families had two parents. Today, only 38 percent do, and the majority of black children are growing up with struggling single mothers. The result: an ongoing epidemic of dropouts, crime, child abuse and relentless poverty. This should be no surprise. Children need fathers. And it's well established that kids from broken homes are far less likely to succeed in life. The boys turn to crime and drugs and end up in jail. The girls turn to sex and wind up pregnant, perpetuating the cycle of misery. How has society responded? By making teen pregnancy easier with 'food stamps, cash assistance, medical coverage and foster care.' Meanwhile, good-for-nothing fathers hop from one baby mama to the next without any consequences. We can blame society or racism if we like for our messed up kids. But 'an intergenerational cycle of dysfunction is unfolding before our eyes,' and only African-Americans can stop it."

March is Irish-American History Month. April is Scottish-American History Month. Jewish-American Heritage Month is in May followed by Caribbean-American Heritage month in June. I'm reminded of the song, "Doo-dah, doo-dah ... oh, de doo-dah day!"

Coming up in September is Hispanic Heritage Month and October is Italian Heritage Month. It's all much ado about nothing really. The late Rodney King said, "Can't we all just get along?"

We could if we all celebrated July. July should be for people like me. I'm a non-hyphenated American. Besides, July is National Hot Dog Month. Everyone could celebrate, everyone likes hot dogs. They're non-offensive and politically correct in 49 of the 50 states. Be careful in New York if you include a hot dog in a Happy Meal or wash one down with more than 16 ounces of soda. And stay away from Styrofoam!

For the few who don't care for hot dogs, just hang on, August is National Catfish Month. And except for those of you who don't eat meat, enjoy yourself!

Mark Twain once said, "Part of the secret of success in life is to eat what you like and let the food fight it out inside."

Until next time,
God bless everybody and God bless America!

Beef Stew for the Brain
Beef Stew for the Brain, is my best ever. A full hour-and-a-half, including bonus features and extras.

The entire project was filmed in high definition and includes the most requested comedy routine of all time the Fat Woman After Dinner.

We're more excited about this than any in the past. This DVD would not be available if not for my good friends John Boy & Billy on The Big Show.
