BlackintheCity.net Commentary (The Murphy Report has been changed to BlackintheCity.net):


A small boy bounces around in his booth at some nameless fast food restaurant that could be anywhere in the US, for that matter anywhere throughout much of the world.

“When will it be ready?” he asks again for the fourth time in less than a minute.

“I wonder what the toy will be?” the boy asks with great anticipation.

For the rest, go to my column.
