How appropriate … how much work we need to do!
Then I notice through a triple-Americano-awakening moment,
in the mall food court, a young Latina cleaning around by the chrome rail
at Sbarro Pizza. Maybe a Guatemalan, possibly Salvadoran or
could’ve been Argentinean or Columbian, Chilean, Bolivian,
Panamanian—good chance a Peruvian, Venezuelan, Nicaraguan, Mayan,
Toltec, Sephardic, Huichol coffee plantation or U.S. Fruit Company
or tobacco company or auto industry slave labor robot or CIA-trained
death squad Guardia Nacional butchery massacre survivor.
Several tables down from mine–roughly stacking chairs on tops
of tables—cussing in Spanish, in the mall food court, she hates her job,
I hate her job.
Of course I am running wicked late … but wanted to mention that the Breakers host the Red Stars tomorrow night in Cambridge … and NEED TO WIN … after losing the series with Sky Blue FC on Sunday. Complicating matters, I believe the B’s will be without Alex Scott and Kelly Smith. A-Rod – will you be stepping up to the plate? It’ll be interesting to see A-Rod vs. Carli Lloyd – two players who came into the season with very high expectations on their shoulders – and haven’t delivered consistently … at least not yet.
What else – Sarah P has penned an op ed for the Post. Any thoughts on how much of it she actually wrote?
Finally – Alison – thanks for the link to Gail Collins’ great piece about Senator Ensign’s exploits … and the prayerful support and advice he’s received from his righteous GOP brethren. I’d love to hear Bill Clinton’s commentary on all this.
