Biden and Ben (Part Deux): Still Clean and Articulate

This should be a Wednesdays' post, but the news is hot off the presses. Gawd, really? Joe Biden is Obama's running mate choice? That thinly veiled racist "clean and articulate" comment has clearly been forgiven. This gives me more heartburn than Ben's at 2 am. Related, Obama's favorite food to make is chili (according to the crack journalism at USAToday). Speaking of which, it's Ben's Chili Bowl 50th anniversary of navigating soft bigotry, racism, and urban decline! There's a loose Ben and Biden connection here vis a vis Obama. I wrote about it two years ago here. I guess it's somehow poetic that both Ben and Biden have survived this long and are both in the news this week...

The celebration of Ben's 50th anniversary and Biden's veep candidacy both exhibit the value of persistence. As Woody Allen said, "Eighty percent of success is showing up."
