The BBC keeps it real



The New Orleans situation is so awful that I actually watched the news last night instead of MTV. An observation: the BBC is the only news channel that discussed whether the hurricane rescue effort was racist in a rational way.

Compare:

BBC reporter: There are accusations that the response to Hurricane Katrina was racist, because the huge majority of the victims were poor and black, and they were left without food or water or medical assistance for many days, and many died as a result.
With:

American reporter: Kanye "Straw Man" West made an accusation that President Bush doesn't care about black people. Generic Pundit, do you agree, or do you think it's divisive and inappropriate to play the race card at this time of crisis?

Generic Pundit: Thanks, Bob. At this time of crisis, it's divisive and inappropriate to play the race card. Plus, President Bush likes Condi Rice and Colin Powell, so it's just not true that he doesn't care about black people.

I hear England is beautiful this time of year.

I just ordered the Speed Fighting 101 system this afternoon, and I've spent the last couple of hours going over it. This system is right on. I've got to tell you how I heard about Speed Fighting 101.

"I'm a bouncer at a large nightclub, and once in awhile, well, just about every night, someone's got to stir sh**. Last night I heard a commotion aways off from where I was stationed. The place was crowded, as usual, and it took me a few seconds to get through the crowd."

"What I found when I got to where the commotion was coming from, was a gal, slight build, early twenties, holding this big guy face down on the floor. She had his shoulder, arm and hand twisted in such a way that he was about to ball like a baby, and everybody standing around was clapping and cheering."

"I asked her where she learned how to do that, cause she was just a little thing, and she said to check out Speed Fighting.com, so here I am. Great stuff, Lance! I'm gonna use your techniques for sure!"

These spam-comments really perfect the art of the non-sequitor. Also, sometimes I wet my bed.
