American Flatbread ~ Flatbread Kitchen
Friday and Saturday June 13+14, 2008
Tonight’s menu and baking are dedicated to
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.
