This multimedia piece from the Wall Street Journal about the descendants of slaves owned by John McCain's family was produced by my friend Christina, who (sniffle) left my paper (weepies) about a year ago (has it been a year already?). This is truly fascinating.
It's amazing work. Christina also once saved my ass by finding a notebook chock full of caption information I really, really needed. I promised to name my firstborn after her. Last weekend, the good folks at the catering company at the wedding I was shooting literally picked up the back end of my car and shoved it free from the hole I got stuck in. Then I promised them the same thing.
Joel, I forgot to tell you. Our firstborn's name will have to be Christina Jeng Cuisine Chez Vous Catering and Events Gaul Jackel.
