Andrew... you always seem to find such cheery news to start a war with here at HR.com!
How about something festive and nice to think about... like a young teenager who collects 14,000,000 aluminum cans to feed the homeless of Cinncinatti this holiday season?
THAT would be a story to talk about that we all can agree on and smile about. Too bad it hasnt happened.

Not a surprise. We've got nutballs like this in our society. A self-proclaimed "terrorist" was just convicted on 51 counts, including threatening to use a weapon of mass destruction, for mailing threats to family planning clinics. I've no doubt there are guys out there who are angry black men are earning a lot more money than they are. In fact, I've met some of those guys, but they were the cry-in-their-beer type rather than the mail-threatening-letters type.

The story said something about the letters being signed "white women" or something. Ooooh, sounds like this genius is gonna throw the cops off his tail by making them think it's a woman. I wonder if his parents were years apart or born from the same mother as twins?
