Ellie 2.0 Radio 10/28/19

An Ellie’s Talking Head Show, we start out recognizing Brittany Spencer, a Fond du Lac, WI restaurant server who refused to wait on the table of two older customers who were making disparaging comments about a transgender customer in the restaurant—it was “morals vs. money.” We shift to the life and legacy of Elijah Cummings, an idealistic Congressman who died last week. I also talk about being the subject (along with others) of a book, One Day: The Extraordinary Story of an Ordinary 24 Hours in America, by Washington Post columnist Gene Weingarten. Finally, in Block C, I share about being “Othered” at a McDonald’s one Sunday evening.
