A few weeks ago I stopped into a Popeye's Chicken in Bloomington, IL for lunch. I arrived a bit before the lunch crowd, so the only people in the building were myself, a black man and his two daughters, and a big, fat white man.
We all had our food and were enjoying our meals... at different tables. Then the white guy finished his meal and got up with the tray. Before walking to the trash, he stopped, "That's some good food, ain't it?" he yelled across the dining room to the African American patrons, "If they served watermelon with this, it'd be just like back down on the plantation, wouldn't it?"
Thankfully, the idiot left after that and let the decent humans in the establishment enjoy the remainder of our meals.

Intro to City of Heroes
For almost a year now I've been an avid player of the MMORPG City of Heroes. It's a great game that allows players to create their own superhero and then go adventuring in "Paragon City."
From time to time I will be publishing a few screenshots from the game, as well as introducing a few of my heroes. Above is one of my guys in a team. I don't remember the names of the other three, but mine is the guy in red and black. His name is Firebird. He's a former fire-breather in a circus who turned to adventuring when he stopped a robbery of the circus payroll.
If you're a player, Firebird is on the Guardian server. Look for him.
