Today we read a story from James Baldwin. As a provocative thinker, essayist, and cultural icon, Mr. Baldwin did not mince words during the civil rights movement of the Sixties in the USA. The Library of America thankfully compiled some of his most important pieces of writing to bring today's story for us, "The Discovery of What It Means to be an American".  James Baldwin lived in France for much of his adult life where he found his voice and writing style to give to the world. One of my biggest takeaways was the, "social paranoia" that we experience here in America when it comes to our status. Keeping up with the Jones' some may say. The interaction described between the waiter and the businessman and the respect that they both have for each other really resonated. I know more episodes are to come from this collections of essays. I was proud to read from this and hope you feel the same.

Sit back, listen on your drive to work, take your shower, whatever the hell it is you find yourself doing - And ENJOY a new episode of Short...Story...Bingo!
