In or around 2004, I had the honor of being asked to sit a panel sponsored by the Manhattan Institute.  Pictured with me are the great minds I am referring to. From left to right are, the “Great One” himself: Stanley Crouch; the esteemed Niger Innis, and the wonderful Debra Dickerson.  Not in the photo is my friend John McWhorter, (as well as other panelists).

There were many wonderful and spirited conversations.  And I was back down to my fighting weight.  All in all a very good day.
