This case of racist ebola profiling (there was, natch, no ebola, but there was a hell of a lot of racism, fed and nurtured by Fox News and CNN and many local rags) is vile beyond words.

I akways knew that Philly was tough on parking.
“I pull up, take off my sunglasses, turn off the ignition and reach for a roll of quarters” he keeps in the car for dumb meters that don’t take credit cards.
He steps out of the car, “I hit my clicker,” the automatic door lock, “it makes a ‘hoo-hoo’ noise” and Yan heads for the curb to feed the meter. He sees a parking-enforcement officer writing a ticket.
“Where did you come from?” asks the startled parking-enforcement officer, Alfred Toto.
“From the driver’s seat,” Yan says, trying not to sound smart-alecky. “I assume you’re not giving me a ticket.”
“Your meter has expired,” says Toto.
I have a quibble with the T-Mobile story. (Full Disclosure: I’ve been a satisfied T-Mobile customer since it was VoiceStream.)
Several years ago, I noticed that someone had “crammed” my T-Mobile bill with a $10.00 a month charge for something I didn’t want and hadn’t signed up for; the billing had appeared three months earlier.

What Would Tyler Perry Do? Trademark “What Would Jesus Do,” evidently.
The Atlanta-based entertainment mogul has successfully trademarked the phrase whose initials have adorned the wrists of untold numbers of church campers or Vacation Bible School attendees.
Getting to the gritty-nitty:
Edward Holley, 59, now faces attempted-murder charges after he admitted to throwing a pot of greasy, scalding grits at Blacknell and severely burned the man.
According to Holley’s arrest report, The two men lived next door to one another. Holley and Blacknell fought regularly and their latest disagreement started Tuesday night. Police did not say what started the argument but a witness said it was over an insignificant issue.
Properly cooked grits should not be greasy, at least, not until you add the red-eye gravy.
You can’t make this stuff up.
