Found a few days back at Poynter Online - Romenesko, which would be one of my daily reads if I was actually, you know, reading things every day. But I digress.
HoosierTimes: 'Boondocks' creator spares no one in IU speech
Aaron McGruder handed out equal-opportunity insults Thursday as the keynote speaker for Indiana University's Black History Month activities.
[. . .] He didn't spare the several hundred people who came to hear him speak, either.
"Americans have completely and totally lost control of their government," he said, and they clapped. "You're applauding as if that ain't your fault," he added.
He also speaks (as he's written) about Al Sharpton's hair. In the strip, it's Huey dishing out and receiving the abuse, which is a Good Thing. Ain't no need for Caesar to have to deal with that, 'cause ain't nothing wrong with dreads.
Except mine, which are sorely in need of a visit with the locktician. It's a shame Mary, the previous owner/operator of Hair Is, decided to go into teaching full time, because Belinda (sweetie though she is) just doesn't do as well by them.
Nada más going on here in Minneapolis, where the newsreader tempted us with "warmer temperatures" yesterday without mentioning that he just meant it would be around 25, and wouldn't go below zero tonight. For our international visitors, that's all in Fahrenheit. I expect someone will be along shortly to post the conversion formula between that and the Celsius used pretty much everywhere else on the planet if you're still confused.
And there's a semi-new gallery up at Heather's, but it's just me, not her. Try to contain your disappointment.
