Sidney Poitier

I have nearly reached the end of "Measure of a Man: A Spiritual Autobiography."   It is a very good read, and yes! it is spiritual, and close enough to "agnostic" to match my mindset.

Incidentally, Lilies of the Field was shot in thirteen days on a $250,000 total budget.  It got Poitier an Oscar for best actor.  Not quite "loafs and fishes" or raising the dead, but pretty a spectacular occurrence
