"It's the US without the Periods." Jalal Mansur Nuriddin aka Lightning Rod- The Last Poets 1/20/09

Got to talk to Jalal Mansur Nuriddin aka Lightning Rod from The Last Poets this morning on Skype from the Kraked offices in Paris...I was calling to talk to MonteCristo and see what the feelings outside the US were. His first words were "Happy Birthday" Before I could ask him what the mood was like over in Paris he asked me how I was feelin. It told him Happy Birthday is right because I'm feelin that this is like the Birth of a New Nation.
They couldnt get the office tv to work so I was describing what I was watching then I asked him.
"I gotta know.. What's Jalal thinking about this" Next thing I know I looking at his face with the biggest grin. I wish I taped it, it was a moment for the ages. I won't try to repeat what he said from memory because I couldn't do it justice and it was so beautiful that paraphrasing would be wrong. The one thing that I could quote exactly will have to do but it says it better than I ever could.
