Legim ak mori, right. Also some fritters, coconut water and a bottle of Ting but if they don’t have Ting ask for ji chadek and get some seltzer at the corner.  Hurry, I’m starving!

Speaking of Haitians, WWIB is more than a  month remiss in welcoming the relaunch of Combat Jack’s Daily Mathematics, now with CJ’s brother Blackneck as esteemed collaborator. For those who missed it, the dynamic duo rolled out the welcome mat July 6 and have been challenging, amusing, educating and celebrating America, Brooklyn, hip-hop and the internets ever since. Long may they prosper!
— Willis Still Sunsweet, The Music Director
