I realize that I'm really spoiling the mood -- and likely validating any argument that could be made against me in reference to my recent personal crisis -- but a good inappropriate comment is a good inappropriate comment.
Today, thousands of protesters descended on the small 19th century town of Jena, Louisiana to march against what they preceive to be the unfair treatment of six black high school students accused in the assault of a white classmate. (Incidentally, you know the 60's-era civil rights movement has run its course when the best it can muster is rushing to the defense of a bunch of little thugs who beat another kid -- even a dumb redneck -- nearly to death; I don't give a damn how racially persecuted they may have felt.) The rally was lead by -- and stop me if you've heard this one before -- professional victims and self-proclaimed men-of-God Jesse Sharpton and Al Jackson.
Here's the thing though: Since most of the protesters live nowhere near Jena, Louisiana, they had to be brought in via a fleet of buses.
So do you think anyone complained about having to sit at the back of the bus?
