When I cook a meal and invite family, most are polite enough to thank me and praise my "good cooking." But more often than not, many will mention the gravy. I might believe those remarks, for the gravy is hearty and rich in flavor and deep in color.
And now, with the inauguration of Barack Obama, I believe that our dark-skinned Americans have fully thrown themselves into our American "melting pot" to finally make it the truly rich and hearty gravy that we never had before this time. I am now ready to invite the whole world to any feast we offer.
If you do not like "gravy" (and you know who you are) come anyway. You will only be missing the best part of the meal. God bless us all and God bless America.
