You Can't Do That to a White Man!

I guess this counts as my inaugural contribution to the Hostilidays.

Merry Christmas! dammit.

From, 12-14-10: "A bus driver in Champaign-Urbana, IL resigned after officials with the transit agency saw this video of his bus running over a snowman in the middle of a street. Another vehicle steered around the snowman just before the bus hit it."

Proving yet again that the primary purpose of our American systems and institutions is still to ensure the protection and privileges of white men. *ba doom, rimshot*

Landrieu & Vitter Silent on Taxes and Unemployment Benefits

I couldn't help but notice that LA's Senators are strangely quiet about the two biggest Congressional issues plastered all over the news this week: extending tax cuts for the wealthy and extending unemployment benefits. Neither Sen. Landrieu nor Sen. Vitter have even so much as a one-sentence press release regarding these issues on their websites.
