In the nightmare I found myself nude in bed, and I was looking at a mirror
on the ceiling, and I discovered that I am a Negro, and I'm circumcised!
Quickly I sat up, found my pants and looked in the pockets to find my
driver's license photo and it was that same colour, black.
I felt myself being very depressed, downcast, sitting in a chair.
But it's a wheelchair!
That means, of course, besides being black and Jewish, I'm also disabled!
I said to myself, aloud 'This is impossible! It's impossible that I should
