    Hope this isn't a d_b, but this site automatically changes any reference to "gay" to "homosexual" on any news story, so we get this when Tyson Gay broke the world record in the 100 meters:

    Like the Enola Homosexual incident from a few years back at a newspaper ... was it in Crystal Lake, Ill.?

    This one had a better thread title. An actual description instead of a political judgment.

    And yeah, this is a sad and hilarious story.

    There's a story of a newspaper about 15-20 years ago (the NYT?) that, in a business story, mentioned that a company's profits had put it "back into the African-American."

    The hits just keep on coming.

    Such an immature country, in so many ways.

    I'm in the weird minority: I think thread titles should actually tell you what they are about.
