Political Flatbread, June 13 & 14, 2008

American Flatbread ~ Flatbread Kitchen


Friday and Saturday June 13+14, 2008

Tonight’s menu and baking are dedicated to


Political Flatbread


Maybe it’s all the long news

About the presidential campaign,

Maybe it’s the compelling issues

Of our times,

Maybe it’s just me growing restless

As I watch my time to act slip away.

But for whatever reason,

I observe Flatbread becoming

Increasingly political. And as it does so,

I feel the pull and tug on my

Natural neutrality. I am less inclined

To favor a party or candidate. I don’t

Want to put a poster up with someone’s

Name on it. I do want to host

A forum to listen to one another

And exchange ideas. There are

Enough good and important questions

To fill all of the days between

Now and November.


Thanks for coming tonight. To those of you who are fathers, Happy Father’s Day. With all of the ways our lives have changes, parenting remains one of the great and noble acts of the human experience. To those of you who married this time of year, Happy Anniversary.
