Councilman Gets Down

HT to the fun lovers at Peach Pundit for this video. It is tough to say who is more in the wrong here. The white guy should not have interrupted, but when the black guy came back with “I’m not in the cotton field”, he left himself wide open for what followed.

In more media news, Wikileaks has released a truckload of documents thumbdrive about the war in Babylon. Appearing on Democracy Now, Daniel Ellsberg made a comment that resonated with former document shuffler PG.

“DANIEL ELLSBERG: Four hundred thousand documents, allegedly. It is, of course, a leak on a scale that I couldn’t have done forty years ago without scanners and digital capability. I used the most advanced technology at that time, Xerox, and I couldn’t have done what I did ten years before that. AMY GOODMAN: You xeroxed 7,000 pages? DANIEL ELLSBERG: Yes. It took a long time, one page at a time. So I’m quite jealous of the current capabilities.”

Another segment of Democracy Now featured a dialog between Lt. Dan Choi and “Lesbian activist” mattilda bernstein sycamore. Mattilda wonders if including queers in the killing machine is really a good idea. Lt. Choi countered with this:
“war is a force that gives us meaning. War is a force that teaches us lessons of humanity and allows us to realize something about our society and teaches us the lessons that we probably should have learned before we went to war.”
Black and white pictures today are from ” The Special Collections and Archives,Georgia State University Library” . The screen shots of Mattilda and Lt. Choi are by PG, who thinks that Lt. Choi would look good wearing a pink tie.
