Re: Mickey's absence and Bob's promise. Maybe Mickey is at a hip-hop conference.
McWhorter’s comparatively measured approach may strike more of a chord with black listeners, although the fact that he is a senior fellow at the conservative Manhattan Institute means many people not familiar with his previous forays into politics (including the excellent polemic Losing the Race) will automatically write him off as a Republican hack. In fact, he is a centrist, and is supporting Obama in the presidential contest. (His Bloggingheads video dialogues with another independent-minded black intellectual, Glenn Loury, have been one of the most fascinating new media phenomena of this election year.)
