Ed give me a break... The President cannot step in and settle every
situation.. asking him to invite those cretins who beat up that kid on the bus in some kind of race summit is NUTSY FAGEN

When the President spoke last week about personal responsibility in what we do .. it did not mean he has to step in and settle every situation.. It meant we are personally responsible for what we do.

Rush Limbaugh is a racist for saying what he did today.. Lets deal with that..

1. Sometimes Ed goes just a teensy bit overboard. I'm with you.

3. It would have to be a Coca-cola summit this time. At least the playground would be a good setting.

4. I almost e-mailed to say, "My special needs nephew rides the bus every day w/o incident."
"If I convince him to stage a bus-jacking, can *he* meet the president too?"

5. I thought that was stupid also.
I've never been too impressed with Ed, but that was particularly stupid.

6. There is a bad racial climate building in the country now - I think it would
be a good idea to talk about race relations and this controversial video is all over the place - the audio on radio, tv and the internet.

The nutbags are, and will continue, to make hay with it.

Instead of kicking the issue under the rug, why not drag it out into the open and lets at least try to talk about what happened. School kids are still young enough to change views they learn at home.
