2/16/11- Enjoyable showing at the St. Martin des Porres Center in Columbus, OH. The Center offers a cross-section of programming to the Columbus community and I appreciated being invited back by Christina Butler, the director. I came up short in the q&a when asked what African American writers might have influenced Griffin. Beyond Dr. King I didn't have much to offer. I need to do my homework better as I'm sure there were several.
Finished in time for the start of the Ohio State game (vs. Michigan State). It's obvious this is a football town. All the news this morning was about Art Schlichter, the old OSU quarterback getting caught in another scam.
