It's still in the headlines here

My mother-in-law has come to stay with us. Wow. It's a whole other perspective coming from someone who was at once too close to get the whole picture, but who was there and has been there and has a first hand account of what's been going on. Add on to that a whole set of prejudices and it's like listening to a radio broadcast of the Times-Picayune with Powerline breaking in on the frequency repeatedly.

e.g. 'we were all stranded on the overpass for hours - I now hate black people and poor people, especially the ones with guns.'
