on the road with bernie mac
what should every visitor know about chicago?
"how sweet it is, how styling, how friendly. it's a small town in a big city."
when you travel, what do you never leave home without?
okay, what physical things, like books
"i don't want to get philosophical on you, man, but my bible. i always have a bible."
is there one passage you like to read while you're traveling?
"no. as much as i try to read the bible, every time is like looking at the godfather. i always see something i've never seen or i didn't catch. i always find something, no matter how many times i read it, you know? something that's in there that hits me a different way."
