Three Interesting Things

1. RWA type stuff has taken up a lot of my time, but I have been following the discussion surrounding Jeanine Cummins choice to write about Mexicans, when she had previously positioned herself as just white.  I am well aware, that disconnection and reconnection to your heritage is often an ongoing process, but it seemed that if she really wanted to tell a story that was personal to her, the Puerto Rican experience provided a rich tapestry.  So, I enjoyed prolific author Aya De Leon's take on the discussion.
2. Of course, we know I love flower peeps, so I enjoyed this story about the new flower truck in DC.  I'm sure Adriana would be thrilled. 
3. I was fascinated to discover that there are folks pursuing their own form of Jediism, although I likely should not have been surprised.  Going to be looking into lightsaber fencing, that sounds fun.
