re: Rhonda A. Lee

There have been numerous petitions online being signed to urge KTBS to re-hire Lee. The discriminatory actions of her firing are of out-right misogyny and racism. Not to mention these corporate policies (Not only at the TV station, but in countless corporations) re: facebook postings are downright draconian. NO American should NOT have a right to speak out on ANY issue in any given situation. What Lee did was COURAGEOUS and if we are to advance at all with any social progress we need more COURAGEOUS ACTIONS, not cowardly "sweep-it-under-the-rug-and-everything-will-be-better" actions of weakness. Sign this petition http://www.causes.com/actions/1714107 The push-back is happening now.

Mistake in tennis link

It was Caroline Wozniacki, not Maria Sharapova, who made an offensive imitation of Serena Williams according to the linked-to post. If Sharapova has also imitated Williams, I don't see where that's referenced here. Obviously it's not a light thing to accuse someone of racism and it seems pretty unfair to Sharapova to get the information wrong.

Hi, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your website in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in
Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that,
wonderful blog!
