With Thanksgiving coming up tomorrow, I’ve decided to list a few things for which I'm thankful: The Phillies Championship - After more than two decades of heartbreak, our city finally won a major sports championship. Even more wonderful is the fact that the city partied hard without any major incident. McCain’s Loss – While I refuse to be swept into the cultish fervor of Obamarama, I am nonetheless grateful that John McCain is not our nation’s president-elect. If he were, some of us might be reporting to the cotton fields for orientation. Sarah Palin’s Media Tour – In addition to being wildly entertaining, Sarah Palin’s current “I won’t point fingers but it wasn’t my fault we lost” routine is the best guarantee that she won’t be the GOP’s nominee in 2012. The McNabb/Reid beef– While some see the current tempest between Andy Reid and Donovan McNabb as a major downer, I see it as a gift in disguise. Why? Because it moves the Philadelphia Eagles that much closer to a painful but necessary rebuilding process. The State of the Black World Conference – Last week, a group of activists, organizers, and intellectuals convened in New Orleans to critically assess and engage the most pressing issues in the Black community. The conference suggests that all blacks are not sitting on their hands in the age of Obama. John Forte – In 2001, the rapper/producer (and my friend) was sentenced to 14 years in federal prison for a first time drug offense. On Monday, President Bush commuted his sentence, allowing him to return home before the end of the year. If only we could provide the same relief for all victims of mandatory minimums… Kindred The Family Soul – A few weeks ago, one of the country’s most talented (and underrated) music groups released its third album, “Arrival”. At a time when the most artists are playing to the lowest common denominator, Aja and Fatin continue to raise the musical stakes for an entire generation. Reverend Dr. Alyn Waller – In today’s era of “bling bling gospel,” there are few too many religious leaders truly committed to feeding their flock. In addition to providing his congregants with an informed message, the Pastor of Philadelphia's Enon Tabernacle and his wife Ellyn Jo have committed themselves to dismantling the international sex trade that has taken away the life chances of young girls.
