From a FWIW reader:
FWIW – somewhere along the Old Federal Highway, June 28, 2014
Turns out, Benjamin Moore already had “Clinton Brown” and “Confederate Red” in its lineup, but naming a new shade “Tucker Brown” was final proof, Mr. Clinton Tucker claims, of the company’s racist intent towards him.
Tucker made other allegations, including that the company has a “toxic” work environment that is hostile to minorities.
Tucker, who identifies himself in the suit as homosexual, claims that since he started at the company in 2011, “it was clear…that he was not part of the traditional culture of the company.”
His boss ignored an email Tucker sent requesting to be able to take off work to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the suit claims.
“This request was ignored and [the director of digital marketing], just mockingly smirked at the plaintiff on Martin Luther King holiday.”
Sounds to me like Mr. Tucker’s real problem is that he’s a whiny, entitled, she-bitch, and that type rarely does well in life.
The race for Oklahoma’s Third Congressional District took a bizarre twist when Timothy Ray Murray claimed incumbent Rep. Frank Lucas was replaced by a robotic body double three years ago.
On his Web site, Murray alleges the switch took place after Lucas was killed by the World Court.
In Tesei’s case, the foul deed was accomplished by the Greenwich Republican Town Committee – “we needed a limp noodle”, Republican party leader James Campbell told FWIW, “and while the real Peter was pretty much ideal, we decided to go for perfection, right from the start, so we put him aside and brought in our robot – so far, you’re the first person to even notice.”
Although briefly – I have so much of John’s stuff in my truck: guitars, amplifiers and skis, that I look like a Hank Williams/Jean Claude Killy Oakie heading for California, except that it’s in the other direction, so I’m off to Maine to drop it off. In the meantime, and now that the PC police have won their synthetic campaign to purge the name “Redskins” from the arena, here’s another project for them, found on the highest elevation long the old Federal Highway, in Maryland. The mountain top was so named to honor a slave, Nemesis (no kidding) who was killed fighting redskins in 1750 or so, but what difference, at this point does it make? Mr. Governor, take down this sign!
