Essay 665

A Midweek Mini MultiCultClassics Monologue…

• City of Los Angeles lawyers are griping that lawyers for the family of slain rapper Notorious B.I.G. are going all out — and even lying — to “satisfy their ambition to extract hundreds of millions of dollars” from the city. The family had filed a wrongful-death suit against the city, which led to a mistrial when it was discovered that liars in the LAPD deliberately withheld evidence. At this point, it’s unclear if the city lawyers are actually upset or simply lying.

• President Bush continues to push his melting pot views. “One aspect of making sure we have an immigration system that works, that’s orderly and fair, is to actively reach out and help people assimilate into our country,” said Bush. “That means to learn the values and history and language of America.” Wonder when Bush plans to learn the language himself.
