Media diet: Richard Rodriguez, Harriet McBryde Johnson.

The best of today's media diet:
- Richard Rodriguez on NOW with Bill Moyers, which I'm watching as I write this. "Mexican TV is like Swedish TV, it's an exercise in peroxide." I love it when fellow brown people talk about it. (Yes, I'm brown. It's a lot more obvious here than back in Colorado, but talk to me awhile and you'll see.) "In 1972 I became Hispanic. . . until then, I was a Mexican-American."
- "Unspeakable Conversations" by Harriet McBryde Johnson in this weekend's NY Times Magazine. Disabled rights activist and lawyer meets with Phillip Singer.
