    The crooks and liars blog on racism is definitely worth a gander, and especially on the issue of racism in the liberal/progressive camp.  One of the links in that blog is to the WSJ blog about some researchers who say their evidence shows "evidence that white Americans see race relations as a zero-sum game, in which one group’s gains must be offset by another’s loss."  Or to reword that, they believe the only way to lift up someone in a minority status is by knocking down a white person.


    Same mentality that leads some folks resent public service union workers.


    Aldrin! Sweeeeet! Some punk comes up to a little old man - half his size and twice his age - and calls him a coward and a liar? 

    Still though... Aldrin was a part of a pretty enormous hoax.
