good spoken word makes my soul happy

Just a quick note – in case you haven’t heard yet, Rosie O’Donnell apologized for her ‘ching-chong’ joke, and for her lame earlier attempt at apology.  Sounds like it’s due to Beau Sia’s beautiful spoken word video ‘an open letter to all the rosie o’donnells.’  You can read more about the whole thing (and see her real apology) at angry asian man.  I’m just amazed that she did apologize… if only it hadn’t taken so long… but then again, most of us are still waiting for apologies from other people who’ve used the very un-original ching-chong jokes. 

but I like the way beau ends –

‘now’s the time rosie
we all make mistakes
there’s always room
for forgiveness’

so true.
