  1. I just talked to my daughter briefly about Rosa Parks this morning, in reference to what is going on with the buses in Israel (as a possible way to distract her teacher and talk about Martin Luther King instead of the usual whatever). But she had no idea what I was talking about and she really did need to get to school.

    The choice of Coluche sounds impressive…
