Free for all

Saturday night open line. I have to go out and trim some wheat fields.

The news today includes an analysis of whether Bush could help himself by showing up for the Central High 50th. So far, Bush hasn't committed. But Harold Ford, Tavis Smiley, the Emancipation Proclamation and some guy named Bill Clinton have booked. If you were George Bush, would you like to be compared to that lineup? It could be we'll see Barack Obama and Bill's mizriz, too. Not to mention a full schedule of fussing over the current state of race relations in LR and the US of A.

Also, police say there was another passenger in the car fleeing police when it struck another car Thursday night on Wright Avenue, killing that car's driver, a car salesman on his way home from work. The 21-year-old woman was thrown from the overpass into weeds below and wasn't found until today. Police were told about her Friday night when one of the suspects in the car being chased recovered from injuries enough to talk to police.

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
