Time. Too much of it on our hands

That would be the group Asian Americans Advancing Justice, who must be actively patrolling everywhere to see if they should be offended. In this case, the store Pottery Barn was selling two costumes -- that of a sushi chef and a kimono -- which the hyper-sensitive group claimed were "culturally offensive." Here's a pic of what's offensive, according to the group. Really?

Ling Woo Liu, "director of strategic communications" for the AAAJ (as opposed to what -- tactical communications?) said that Pottery Barn's apology was "very passive." Is that so. Well I'd say, Ms. Liu, that you're very boring.

I await now, among others, Irish groups having a cow over Leprechaun outfits, and Scandinavians moaning about Viking costumes.

Yeesh. Another example of how PC attitudes have made people into oversensitive crybabies.

Maybe since my ancestors are from Norway and Sweden, I should protest Viking costumes. LOL.

Believe it or not there are Irish groups that hate the Notre Dame logo because it stereotypes Irish people. There's one in every crowd. I'm sure there are Canadians who would complain about Bob and Doug McKenzie too.

Really? Because of the Leprechaun symbol? I hadn't heard that, but I doubt that they exist.

Oops, I meant to say that I don't doubt they exist. Was typing too fast again.
