notes from
the MUCK . . .

How does your garden grow? With muck, muck and more muck! I spent much of today finishing the final muck box and then shifting muck from one box to the next. The first box, which the Big Lad is enthusiastically pointing out, has been rotting down for two years now and once we’d removed the top quarter of unrotted material, we found we’d hit the pay dirt.

That's What Happens When You Interrupt a White Man

I'm sure you've all heard about Michael Richards freaking out on stage in a racist fury. In reading some articles, I came across this one, entitled "Defending Michael Richards (a.k.a. Kramer)." Here's an insightful excerpt:

I can hear the knee-jerk reaction of the politically correct media coming a mile away on this one:

Michael Richards is a racist and should apologize for what he's said.


Which is a shame because it's impossible to logically draw the conclusion that he's a racist from the incomplete and edited piece of tape that only runs two-and-a-half minutes.

Sure, he says "nigger" an awful lot, but without the entire context of the show, we don't know what factors led up to Richards' tirade against the heckler.

First of all, that man is not and never will be Cosmo Kramer. Sure he bears a striking resemblance to a great character on one of the best and most beloved television shows of all time, but fortunately this shithead is merely a distant, severely retarded relative.

Second of all, who the hell writes this kind of garbage? Is this some sort of sophisticated satire or something and I just don't get it? I'd say it takes balls to follow the statement "it's impossible to logically draw the conclusion that he's a racist" with the sentence "sure, he says 'nigger' an awful lot," but this person clearly has no balls. Or brain. Or soul.

But that's probably just a knee-jerk reaction, right?
