. . . had hit after hit Monday. First this piece on “scaring white people”; then this one on a Tea Party guide for avoiding black neighborhoods if you attend Glenn Beck’s odd civil rights march this weekend; this one on the alleged year of the anti-incumbent (except the incumbent seems to keep winning); and this one on the credit card reforms that have just kicked in (you can no longer be charged $29 for exceeding your credit limit by $5 or have the interest jacked up on stuff you’ve already purchased).
Quote of the Day
