Oh, no! There go all the brackets
“But chances are your bracket is a mess going into Friday's games and the odds of winning the tournament pool are next to nil. But you joined millions of brackets that were busted.”
Opposing Voter ID Laws in the Name of Race Is Insulting to Minorities
"Unless you have a very low opinion of minorities, how could you conceivably argue that it is racist to require that all voters prove their identity as a condition to voting? If anything racist is involved here, it is in the suggestion that minorities are too incompetent to furnish their IDs. How could you disrespect minorities any more than that?"
