      Who dreamed up this plan?  Is it in writing or is this just the way things are done?  Some person or persons decided this is the way it should be so this question needs to be directed to them.

        With all the "serious" racism discussions I thought a little perspective-adjustment might be in order. As in, just who the hell do we think we are? Righteous indignation and kumbahya campfires... count me out.

        Oh well.
