Punching in on Monday with MultiCultClassics Minutes…
• President Bush declared that the U.S. does not torture suspects. This should come as news to all the suspects who have been tortured during the war on terror — as well as the soldiers sentenced to prison for torturing folks. Or maybe White House wordsmiths will spin a fresh term. Intelligent Interrogation, perhaps?
• The “girlcott” staged against Abercrombie & Fitch appears to have worked (See Essay 214). T-shirts bearing offensive statements have been pulled from store shelves. Doing the right thing is easy when it’s less than three weeks before the holiday shopping season.
• Diddy spent $350,000 to pimp his ride, even customizing the Chevy Express 3500 with a full wet bar. Not sure how it would be legal to serve liquor in a vehicle. MADD may be revised to stand for, “Mothers Against Damned Diddy.”
• Michael Jackson has reportedly been sneaking into London to record music with his kids, hoping to inevitably release an album. Brilliant idea. The Kink of Pop should produce duets with Pee Wee Herman, R. Kelly and Mary Kay Letourneau.
