I certainly understand why people have picked up on the racial aspect of the Weiner story. But is it really true that all prison sex is consensual? I guess if you're a victim of sexual assualt in prison you deserved it because, after all, you're in prison.

I don't know why, but I am continually amazed when folks put something out on the internet or in a text message & are then shocked when there are copies of it everywhere.

Unfortunately, the Journal link is somewhat useless, as you have to have a subscription to view the story...

However, I find Wiener's protestations to be hollow. Come ON. He didn't realize this "joke" was racist? Really? At least he had to realize it was in poor taste--oh, wait, he didn't realize that, either--until the e-mail was publicized. Is Wiener really trying to say that prison sex is consensual? Wow. I think the appropriate thing, then, is for Mr. Wiener to spend a week over at MDC and he can investigate the situation for himself. People should really be asking themselves whether they want someone like this overseeing the jail.

OBTS: the Journal story was accessible as of last night. But it looks like they've now removed even their lame one-time "trial" viewing option, leaving all online content accessible only to people who already get a physical copy of the paper. Now that's useful...post changed to reflect the (apparent) new policy.

there's something about reading the kob.com comments section that's akin to watching an episode of jerry springer. I'm disgusted by people's attitudes, shocked at their ignorance, embarrassed on their behalf and yet....I just can't seem to turn away.

as of 1:14pm, the journal's trial access pass is working for me on the story.
i have nothing to add to the wiener story, other than i think he should resign because he obviously thinks the electorate are fools. i'm not holding my breath for him to be honorable.

Or maybe HIS electorate really likes this stuff. There's always that.

weird, jeff...still not working for me. Maybe by linking to their stories I've violated some secret rule and am forever exiled?
Comment by Phil_0 on March 30, 2010 at 2:07pm
that could have something to do with it...however, it doesn't let me in regardless.

@hettie re: KOB Comments -
One of the comments read: "The joke was funny:
Obama released some statistics today saying the 86% of blacks enjoy sex inthe shower, he further states that the other 16% havn't been incarcerated yet!!!! LOL!!! Thats some funny shiate
[emphasis mine]"

It would appear their sense of humor is right up their with their grasp of basic mathematics.
