As Glen Beck brings his re-writing history circus to D.C. this weekend let's take time to remember the true March on Washington.


Spike Lee (SPK) 19.49 +4.1 +21.04%

The more "God Willing and the Creek Don't Rise" and fewer "Miracle at St. Anna" the better for Mr. Lee's legacy.


Mississippi (MS) 9.19 -3.97 -30.17%

Mississippi fails again. In 2010 there's a middle school in the state where there are restrictions on what race someone can be when running for class office. We wish we were making this up.

Are you kidding me?!

Good for Shirley Sharrod for standing by her principles and declining the USDA's job offer. If they're so willing to throw you under the bus once, don't think they wouldn't do it again.

Okay, so the DEA wants to hire Ebonics translators. You know what? Not the craziest thing we've ever heard. And if it means getting black people jobs in this economy we say go for it.

The Index mourns the loss of "48 Hours" correspondent Harold Dow.


Cee-Lo Green and "Fuck You"

Yeah, all that stuff we said about Bed Intruder Song -- well, it didn't take long for that to look like a silly prediction.


50 Cent

Responding to Cee-Lo's song out of nowhere just two days after it comes out seems kinda desperate and uninspired to me. Leave the Youtube parodies to the amateurs, Curtis.

Not to go all Bill Maher New Rules on you, but here's a simple rule of thumb. If you claim to care about the Constitution and still have a problem with building a mosque in lower Manhattan, than you are an asshole. That's all there is to it.

Get riled up about something that matters.
