Jeff Goldstein, over at Protein Wisdom, is one of my essential reads. He is incisive, direct, occasionally bitchy, and often funny. Today, he took on the stupid law that passed here in Washington State that not only bans, but apparently forces retrograde editing of the word "Oriental" when referring to people. He posted a wonderfully vitriolic rebuttal, and then the comments started pouring in. Amongst the regular posters, there were a few trolls (yes, Aaron, I'm talking about you), a couple of interesting posts, and a few that simply defy belief. Check out the thread, and read all of the comments.
Andrea and Blow Hard have a lot to say about this idiocy, too. Take a look at their blog entries.
