Virginia Tech Invites Racist To Speak


In an effort to promote "diversity" on campus, or perhaps to simply foment hatred towards whitey, Virginia Tech brought (or perhaps they just couldn't prevent from coming) race-baiter (see Tawana Brawley saga), demagogue (see Crown Heights riot saga), accessory to murder (see 1997 New York City Korean storeowner slaying saga), and shill (see Nation of Islam saga), "The Reverend" Al Sharpton to the Burruss Hall auditorium on Tuesday to speak to a small but adoring crowd. The theme of his speech? Hate, of course.

And there was plenty of it to go around.

Students flood Burruss to hear “Al Sharpton on America”

Students greeted 2004 Democratic presidential candidate and activist Al Sharpton with a standing ovation last night in Burruss Hall auditorium. An ordained minister at the age of 10, Sharpton scrutinized the Bush administration with the fervor of a fire-and-brimstone preacher and the color of a late-night comic. (link)
Highlights of his speech included:

  • George Bush is evil.
  • Republicans are evil.
  • Capitalism is evil.
  • Christian conservatives are anti-gay, therefore bigoted, and evil.
  • Doggone it, the entire United States of America is evil.

Hell, it turns out, isn't all that bad.

“Even if I have a theological debate on where someone is going, if they are going to hell, I’m going to fight for their right to get there,” Sharpton said.

That would be The Reverend Al Sharpton.

Obviously he doesn't walk around with the moniker The Reverend because he wants to save souls. It must, therefore, have more to do with his wont for "preaching" hatred to the simpleminded; on Tuesday to those attending Virginia Tech.

Now Where Did That Darn Cat Go?


You can't kill them even when you try.


Cat Survives Trip on Roof of Car

INKOM, Idaho — Torri Hutchinson's cat might just have one less life to live.

Hutchison was driving along Interstate 15 one day recently when a motorist kept trying to get her attention and pointing to the roof of her car.

She said she was wary of the man, but wondered if perhaps her ski rack might have come loose. She pulled over to the side, but kept her doors locked and the motor running.

The man pulled up behind her. Hutchinson rolled down her window to hear the man frantically shouting, "Your cat! Your cat!"

He reached for the roof of her car and handed the shocked Hutchinson her orange tabby. She had driven about 10 miles with the cat on top of the car, and didn't even notice the feline when she stopped for gas. (

I could have told Ms. Hutchinson that you can't get rid of a cat by launching him at 70 miles an hour on the interstate.

I've tried it several times.

This Is No Way To Start Out In Life

Police hauled off a violent Williamsburg perp in handcuffs on Tuesday and took him to jail, where he has been charged with disorderly conduct and assault and battery. What caught my attention was this: the accused is eight years old.
8-year-old arrested at school after outburst
The Associated Press

WILLIAMSBURG -- Police arrested an 8-year-old boy who allegedly had a violent outburst in school, head-butting his teacher and kicking an assistant principal, when he was told he couldn't go outside to play with other students.

The 4-foot pupil was led away from Rawls Byrd Elementary School in handcuffs Tuesday and charged with disorderly conduct and assault and battery.

"It's not something that happens every day," Maj. Stan Stout said of what could be the department's youngest arrest ever.

Stout said the chair-tossing, desk-turning outburst occurred after a teacher, and later the assistant principal, attempted to stop the boy from joining his classmates.

The child was later released to his parents. (

It is not known if the parents were provided with police protection.

Incredible news on the jobs growth front:
U.S. jobs grow by 262,000 in month
By Patrice Hill, THE WASHINGTON TIMES

U.S. employers created 262,000 jobs last month, a pickup in job growth that sparked a rally on Wall Street and sent major stock indexes to their highest levels since June 2001. (

Now if we could have a few of those 262,000 sent down here to Southwest Virginia, we sure would appreciate it.
