I want to say how happy I am that I don't live in Lakeview. I want to say that there probably aren't that many people in Lakeview who share these same views and who use "Democrat" as a code word for "Other", but I'm really not sure anymore. I want to tell all of those crackers to go to hell, but, in a way, they are probably already there. I want to shake them all silly and tell them we are all in the same boat and that the racism makes things much worse. I want to make every one of them very, very ashamed and disgusted with themselves somehow.
The blogpocheh is having one hell of a week as it is.
I think I'm gonna go clear away all the banana leaves Dan cut off the trees in the backyard. If anyone sees a crazy woman stinking of rotting bananas running around Lakeview and trying to beat some sense into some residents with a bunch of bananas, then you'll know why.
Please bail me out if I get hauled in...unless Eddie Jordan decides to set me free first. Then I'll lead everybody from OPP - all of us "Democrats" - to Lakeview.
10-26: Ladies and gents, I apologize for my "crackers" comment. Someone in the comments to this post did call me on blanket labeling an entire neighborhood based on the actions of a few blanket labelers who just happen to live in that neighborhood.
I have this knee-jerk response to those who will bend language to suit their own purposes, and hearing about these few people who oppose public transportation because it will bring a nebulous, undesirable "Other" into their neighborhoods, or those folks who would use "Democrat" as a derogatory code for black...it just really burned me up. It does not, by any means, indicate that everybody in an entire area thinks that way. Once again, my apologies if I have offended folks in Lakeview who were lumped in with my angry, snap assessment.
