Beer Solves Racism

Obama invites Gates and Crowley to White House for Cold Ones

When, oh when, will copy editors learn good headlines. The caption writers at CNN have it down:

“President Obama has invited police Sgt. James Crowley and Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates for beer.” (CNN.com Link)

Anyway, what I really want to know is what they are drinking? Blue Moon? Sam Adams? Stone? Pabst Blue Ribbon? Coors Light? What happens when Crowley wants to spend the night? Whose going to be the DD? What if there’s a terrorist attack during the beer session? What if the phone rings at three a.m. and Barack’s still sleeping it off?

These are the questions that should be asked.

This… is Earnest Words.
