These People...

You know a story is compelling when Ira Glass makes it the introductory story to a This American Life episode. My favorite podcast spent the first 15 minutes of last week’s show, titled Turncoat, summarizing the controversy behind San Jose City Councilmember Madison Nguyen and the naming of a certain Vietnamese business district located on a certain Story Road (they actually say Story Road in the piece. Represent!). Even if you’re already familiar with the situation I still highly recommend clicking on this link and listening to the first piece. It’s always interesting to hear white people talk about how crazy our parents are. Thanks to Mishael for the heads-up on this.
