On Monday some Dallas County commissioners were talking about problems processing traffic tickets, and this one commissioner said central collections “has become a black hole.” Not one but two of his fellow officials demanded an apology for his racially insensitive remark. Oh goodness! A lot of the commentary on this blog post about the incident is pretty foul, but our hat’s off to “Don Imus,” who writes, “It’s not like they called it a nappy-headed hole. Now THAT would be outrageous.” [Dallas City Hall Blog]
