O'Reilly has a toasted meltdown

The really sad thing about this whole episode is that I believe he really, truly, honestly doesn't realize that there was anything racist about his remarks. Nothing could be more pitiful than being denigrated by someone who means well, and who thinks they have the best intentions. This kind of inadvertent bigotry is the most insidious. There's just no fighting against these people.

On the September 27 edition of his nationally syndicated radio show, while discussing media coverage of his recent controversial comments about race, Fox News host Bill O'Reilly asserted: "These people aren't getting away with this. I'm going to go right where they live. Every corrupt media person in this country is on notice, right now. I'm coming after you." He went on to warn: "You smear somebody and you can't back it up, you're gonna get it. ... You go after somebody's family, you go after them and smear them with defamation that you can't back up, I'm coming to your house. I'm coming to your house. You'll have a camera up your nose. OK?"
Apparently referring to the media who he said "ran up to Harlem and ... fed black Americans bogus quotes from Media Matters," O'Reilly added, "[I]f I could strangle these people and not go to hell and get executed ... I would -- but I can't. ... All I can do is expose them. And I will."

Parlez-vous Google?

A friend of mine sent me this Google translation of a French travel postcard:

Come to slacken in family on the immense fine sand beach.

Let you surprise by the richness of nature where paths of walks and cycle tracks curve which will carry out you along the ponds, paradise of the fishermen and the walkers.

To the wire of water, plunge in the tropical forest of an exceptional site:
the natural reserve of the Current of Huchet.
You give pleasure and live your passions on one of most beautiful
golf of Europe dominating the ocean.

Appreciate the joys of the beach with surfing, the kite, the beach-volleyball and the pleasure of the bathe. Practise tennis on the many courts, seek strong feelings on the skate park or the forest walk of quads.

Enjoy our festivals and live at the rate/rhythm of our traditions.
Let you carry by the environment of the Moors.


So Not Gay

Last week Senator Craig joined the ranks of those who have come out publicly as So Not Gay. This is great news for the gay community, who have previously celebrated the Un-Pride of such celebrities as Oprah, Tom Cruise, SpongeBob Squarepants, and Michael Jackson (also So Not a Pedophile). Hopefully this will inspire others to come out as So Not Gay (Britney Spears?).
