Tough Room

I don't know how many of all y'all have spent much time in The Deep South ("American by birth, Southern by the grace of God, retarded by the heat and humidity."), but white people love to see other white people being treated poorly by blacks, especially if those "other people" are northerners. It's a sort of "We tried to tell you so!" teachable moment regarding what happens when you give "those people" "a say".

The punch line turns out is that whoever orchestrated this bombing at the NAACP is right. And because stereotypes exist for a reason, it allows the Romney folks to say, "Well, sure, this guy may well indeed be the president and all, for the most part. But he's still black, which means we can pretty much say anything we want about him."

Big Brother 2012!

Did you ever see Cube? It's a sci-fi drama about strangers that wake up all of a sudden in rooms or something. I don't remember if they were together when they woke up or what ever happened to Cube 2. But with the original, you'd walk into a room, a cube, if you will, and something bad would happen. And it turned out that every cube if you will made up a larger cube if you will.

Anyways, it didn't take long for them to figure out that the only way any of them were getting out of that cube was if they somehow managed to go into rooms and not have happen to them some real Saw level shit. So they had to be smart and intuitive and clever and brave. And still, just like that, somebody's head gets chopped in half and they have to start all over.

Is it wrong for me to hope that as each group of 4 enters the Big Brother House for the first time, they fall into a giant food processor filled with glass and sharks and the last thing they hear is Julie Chen laughing who by the way gets decapitated at the end of the 13 minute season premier and finale all in one?

That sounds pretty wrong. And they're all still alive. Oh well.
