Roadkill Update - Kraft Caves In

Earlier, I commented briefly on the Roadkill gummi candy. Kraft, the manufacturer of the offbeat gummi roadkills, caved in to possible political correctness and ceased the production.
In the MSNBC live poll only 27% had answered that they were offended and 73% thought it was all in good fun. They 27% probably doesn't eat candy anyway. Part of that 27% may have been the ones who had a problem with Lawrence Summers, but that's another issue.

Anyway, you can read the whole article here .

Once again the lunatics win. But that is the order of the day, really. Our society is moving from the ludicrous to the absurd. And the tyranny of the minority is increasing for two reasons: They are motivated and they are loud. The normal citizen sees something like this, laughs, and shrugs it off as another pop culture wierdness that will soon pass. However, the loonies, the offended of the world, take it up as another cause (for they cannot exist were it not for their causes) and march in the streets with their megaphones and their idiot jargon shouting full blast.

If there is anything that urks me, it is being governed by the will of the morons. Yet, here we are. Were I to have them all killed, I would be called the villain...

PS--- and this is me, Mark, Herr BC ;)
