commentary, philosophy, and outright rants

But then we knew that already, didn’t we?

According to CNN, the mayor of Jena, LA, land of the nooses and home of the vile, had this to say about a new song by John Mellencamp:

“… the Mellencamp video is so inflammatory, so defamatory, that a line has been crossed and enough is enough.”

Mr. Mayor, get a frickin’ clue:  the hanging of the nooses was so inflammatory, so defamatory, that a line was crossed and enough was enough.  And the town of Jena didn’t do anything about it.

Don’t try to pick fights with songwriters for saying the Emperor of Jena is wearing no clothes – because more people than just Mellencamp can see that you, Mr. Mayor, are nakedly protecting an undercurrent of threats and admissible racism in your town.
