Just one? But yeah, that’s a big one. The world is far safer than when it was when I was a latchkey kid. And yet, my sister, who knows this, doesn’t let her kids hardly do anything outside.

Goddamn, the comments section for Childish Gambino’s “This is America” set to “Call Me Maybe” walks a fine line has a winner. This comment deserves its own article in relation to Gambino as serving the role that folk singers served during Guthrie’s tenure as a human.
