White and black news

Before I start commenting on the curious aspects of a "white NAACP chapter president passing as black" I think I'll wait a few days past the juicy headlines to see how much of the story is true. I declined to get outraged by the pool party video of a few days ago, and, as I expected, more of that story is coming out. The "racist" neighbors start to look a lot less racist and a lot more justified. We'll see what a few more days brings to both stories.

Do you remember the Ray Bradbury story in which an American couple are in South America trying to get back home after some unspecified disaster? One of the people they meet tells them that one has to let newspapers age for a couple of weeks.

I don't have any idea what went on in this particular woman's life, but I am thoroughly enjoying the philosophical bustle as people try to figure out whether one kind of identity change is more valid than another. If everything is malleable, what is fake?
