Bozos on this bus

The "reality" show "Survivor" has announced that its four teams of contestants will be divided along ethnic/racial lines (Asian-American, African-American, Latino and white), provoking cries of rage from the HDC (High Dudgeon Community), including two of its charter members, New York City Councilman John Liu and Rev. Calvin Butts. I haven't heard any complaints from George Allen or Trent Lott, so the assumption seems to be that the white team will win. The whole controversy should be quite a ratings-builder for CBS, leading some cynics to believe that that was its intent all along. As the kids say, ya think?

Meanwhile, in the real world, the Shreveport, Louisiana, Times carried this article just last week (August 24, 2006, and believe me, I checked the date twice):

Coushatta -- Nine black children attending Red River Elementary School were directed last week to the back of the school bus by a white driver who designated the front seats for white children. The situation has outraged relatives of the black children who have filed a complaint with school officials. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is considering filing a formal charge with the United States Department of Justice... (Vickie Welborn)


It looks like we still have some work to do. As soon as the Katrina and 9/11 solemnities are over. And the US Open. And the World Series. Right after we all get a look at the Cruise baby. And take a refresher course in JonBenet. It's on the list. When does "American Idol" come back?

That "Bus Thing"...Heaven Help us. I remember the "Jim Crow" laws. They were just that the law!

The bus driver is more than in for a lawsuit. He should be arrested for violate'n federal law. Probably all sorts of them child abuse regulations as well.

That guy is in for a serious legal reaming. I sincerely hope. Sue him? I got an idea.

What say we drug'em and plant him in front of the Hells Angels house downtown. We put a sign 'round his neck that sez.."Hells Angels is Fagz!" Then we set fire to all their bikes that's parked there.

We ring the door bell, and leave. His explanations, and their reactions should be interesting.

The bus driver is a woman, Sydneyland, but I guess it still works.
