Great story. I'm sure it won't go anywhere in the general media. I am glad that the ladies doing the reporting refrained from mentioning either parties race. This isn't about race, or at least it...

And that explains my avatar...

When Winds accidentally hit the Ban button, she freaked smooth out. The look on her face was priceless. I thought it was hilarious.
