Whatever optimism I still have about the human race was depleted when I flipped on the electric teevee for a news check. HLN was reporting that a white woman moved into a black neighborhood three months ago and, one month a go, hung up a confederate flag. The neighbors are petitioning the city council -- I didn't catch where -- to make her take it down.

Wrong. She has a perfect right to fly the flag. On the other hand, I would not actively object to a new ordinance making her wear a temporary tattoo on her forehead.

"I am a tasteless old bitch, and not smart."

Six months sounds about right.
