Family Issues

Has anyone gotten you into more trouble then your family? To date the largest distraction from the Obama campaign has been the Pastor Wright scheme.
Aside from the fact Pastor Wright’s comments were taken out of context (Hey Auntie Pam). Obama’s willingness to publicly dispute some Pastor Wright’s without disowning him speaks to Obama’s rectitude.
Of course the Clinton camp has taken this obstacle as an opportunity to highlight her superiority. Hillary Clinton was quoted by that associated press saying “I think that given all we have heard and seen, he would not have been my pastor.” A pathetic attempt to deflect from her own current controversy; Bosnia anyone?

Quoted

On Reverend Wright, head pastor of Trinity United Church of Christ:
I can no more disown him than I can disown the black community. I can no more disown him than I can my white grandmother – a woman who helped raise me, a woman who sacrificed again and again for me, a woman who loves me as much as she loves anything in this world, but a woman who once confessed her fear of black men who passed by her on the street, and who on more than one occasion has uttered racial or ethnic stereotypes that made me cringe.

This is Just Unfair!

On last check everyone is responsible for themselves. Even the Lord doesn’t force people to do anything. How can we hold Barak Obama responsible for the comments of his pastor? This is beyond unfair.

The ridiculousness continues….As much as I love my pastor Bishop Wayne Powell I have never been held accountable for his words. For Obama’s campaign to be negatively affected by someone’s actions is incomprehensible.

Just a thought what is John McCain or Hillary Clinton’s pastor preaching about on Sunday? Silly me I forgot they only go to church to collect votes!

Ciao from Florence!

Greetings to All! My name is Allison V. A small town Pennsylvanian with big dreams, I’m taking a break from my adopted home in the big apple for an indefinite period of time, in the culturally rich and historic city of Florence, Italy.

The ubiquity of renassiance paintings and sculptures is likely to inspire my artistic side. Furthermore, my tentative internship at the Biennale dell’Arte Contemporanea di Firenze will keep me better in tune with what’s new in world of contemporary art.

This said, what better column to blog than the Arts. Of course, I do promise to keep things appealing to Lavish readers by keeping it local and diverse. Translation: You won’t just be hearing me prattle on about some renderings painted by some dead white men five hundred years ago in Europe. My aim is to keep it as cross-cultural and “New York” as possible, focusing on dance and theater as well.
