Appalachia’s mountains are being blasted at a rate of several ridgetops each week. Parents fear for the health of their children. And those trying to fight the devastation have found that coal baron Don Blankenship, C.E.O. of Massey Energy, is tougher than bedrock.

So how does Denver Public Schools mark this august occasion? By offering a lunch menu on January 15 — the same day the city hosts the 25th annual Martin Luther King Jr. Business Social Responsibility Awards — that’s billed as "In Honor of M.L.King," and features "Southern Style" chicken, collard greens and sweet potatoes.
Yesterday, DPS apologized for the menu, which was "highly insensitive in light of certain hurtful stereotypes still harbored in parts of our society," according to a statement posted on the district’s web site. Read More.
Although chicken and yams sounds delicious, I sincerely hope it wasn’t a black person who thought of this.
Conservationists say a Japenese whaling boat intentionally sunk one of their ships during a "skirmish" in the Southern Ocean Wednesday. The Ady Gil, a boat that bears an uncanny resemblance to a stealth bomber, sank after a collision with a boat that provides security to Japanese whalers. The Japanese Fisheries Agency says the Ady Gil caused the crash; the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, which operated the Ady Gil, says the Japanese rammed their boat, which has a history of harassing whalers with lasers, radar, and other space-age annoyances. The six crew members aboard the Ady Gil were rescued by a nearby Sea Shepherd vessel, and they vowed not to be intimidated by the incident. "If they think that our remaining two ships will retreat from the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary in the face of their extremism, they will be mistaken," a Sea Shepherd captain said. "We now have a real whale war on our hands."
While obviously ridiculous for any number of reasons, a company called Moon Publicity is insisting that they are developing what they call ‘shadow shaping’ technology - which would allow them to place your advertisement on the Lunar surface. A robotic rover would basically leave impressions on the Moon’s surface with it’s wheels, which are designed to be visible from the Earth due to the shadow cast. The rover drives around, creates your ad or logo, and terrestrial viewers run out to buy your product. When time is up on your ad, I assume, things raked smooth somehow and the space is sold again.
Somewhere, a true ninja is crying at the mere thought of this.
I hate to post more Star Wars related content after featuring the Star Wars: uncut post last week - but really, I can’t help it. I mean, my ninjas - PLEASE! A part of my soul - and my childhood - died when I saw this video.
George Lucas, I can’t believe you allowed this to happen. Is nothing sacred anymore? How much money do you need?
… I’m just sayin’ …
How come the ninja is outside the bathroom window all shady-like, as if he’s casing the joint? Ninja can’t even come inside like the rest of GI Joe’s always do? (I know you remember the burning house scene)
Mom’s home, which means this fool better be out before she calls the cops. Just keepin’ ya’ll on your toes.AA I WILL get at Ghostbusters, too.AA Believe you me…
